Engelhard expands

July 12, 2006

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, red-shade yellow developed for the industrial coatings market. It exhibits excellent lightfastness, weather fastness, bleed stability and rheological properties. More info: Engelhard, (732) 205-5000; E-mail: info@engelhard.com; Web: www.engelhard.com.
