Falcon Technologies launches ColourFal Zero VOC-free universal colorants
Published April 5, 2011
Falcon Technologies Inc. has launched ColourFal Zero VOC-free universal colorants. Designed for in-store point-of-sale (POS) volumetric color dispensing machines and volumetric in-plant tinting, ColourFal Zero is VOC-free, alkylphenol ethoxylate-free (APE/APEO), low odor and contains no free-formaldehyde or formaldehyde donors. With ColourFal Zero, sustainability is built into the colorant design through the use of raw materials from renewable resources. Using a patented technology called SmartTint, this chemistry optimizes flow and eliminates dry out, preventing dripping and blockage of the nozzle in POS dispensing machines, according to the company. As a result, ColourFal Zero can be used in both manual and automatic tintometric dispensing machines. Developed for the global market ColourFal Zero colorants are universal and are compatible with both water borne and solventborne architectural, decorative paints.
