Engelhard Corporation has added four
new color pigments to its Synergy
color pigment line for use in coatings
applications. Synergy pigments offer
significant benefits for formulators of
water- and solvent-based industrial
coatings and powder coatings. The
four new colors, Synergy Orange 6170,
Synergy Orange 6139, Synergy Yellow
6212 and Synergy Orange 6112 have
been designed to meet the end-user’s
specific needs and provide increased
value. Designed for powder and industrial
coatings, Synergy Orange 6112 is
a heavy-metal-free, coloristic offset to
moly orange. The pigment displays
excellent weather fastness, and is solvent
and heat stable to 500°F.
Synergy Orange 6170 is a red-shade
orange that maintains a yellow undertone.
Synergy Orange 6139 is a strong,
mid-shade orange. Both Orange 6170
and Orange 6139 can be used in powder
coatings and in water- and solvent-
based coatings. These pigments
provide a cleaner alternative to similar
shade pigments on the market at
significantly better value. Engelhard
Synergy Yellow 6212 is a medium, redshade
yellow developed for the industrial
coatings market. It exhibits
excellent lightfastness, weather fastness,
bleed stability and rheological
properties. More info: Engelhard,
