Heubach has launched a new and innovative production line for complex inorganic colored pigments (CICPs) in Germany that combines outstanding productivity and flexibility. This new production line enables the production of chrome rutile yellows revealing premium high tinting strength pigments. The special feature of these pigments is that they not only show extremely high tint strength but they exhibit a high level of chromaticity as well, according to the company. The current focus of Heubach’s R&D department is to now ensure the availability of these brilliant pigments on large scale. This unique class of P.Br. 24 pigments is commonly used in plastics applications.
The first product introduced to the market is the HEUCODUR Yellow 2550. It combines multiple outstanding properties in terms of chemical, temperature and weathering resistance with an extremely high tinting strength. It also has a high level of chromaticity and is the first choice in formulating durable colors.
HEUCOPHOS CMP is a new zinc-free addition to Heubach’s well-established anticorrosive pigment line. The company is in the process of introducing it to the market. To date the performance exhibited by this product has been achieved only by using zinc containing anticorrosive. The novel non-zinc-metal complex represents a new generation in modern environmental friendly technology without compromising the performance of demanding applications.
HEUCOPHOS CMP offers non-hazardous metal complex based on phosphate; effective anodic inhibition in solvent and waterborne systems; easy handling; cost-effectiveness and stability in a broad range of resins. HEUCOPHOS CMP provides cost-effective universal applicability which so far has not been seen in non-zinc based anticorrosives, the company reported.
VANADUR 2108 is a new green shade Bismuth Vanadate that is the result of a consequent development work based on the well-established VANADUR product range. VANADUR 2108 shows extraordinarily high tinting strength and very good hiding power combined with high durability, chroma and dispersibility. The high tinting strength opens a new economical dimension for end-users in the formulation of decorative, industrial, powder, coil and automotive coatings. Based on a zinc-free technology it can significantly contribute to ecological-economic balance of paints.
The new HEUCOFIT LR is an innovative pigment preparation line consolidating Heubach´s extensive pigment and pigment preparation know-how into ultimate and comprehensive pigment preparations offering outstanding color solutions for lead chromate replacement.
Heubach has developed six new and highly cost-effective products allowing the direct lead chrome replacement for the most important shades. The new HEUCO FIT LR products combine superior hiding power even in full shade formulations and excellent chroma development.
