Sun Chemical has introduced Palomar Delta Blue 60, a new durable reddish blue high performance pigment for automotive coatings. By virtue of the pigment’s reddish blue shade, compared with conventional Blue 60, up to 50% of the pigmentation in paint can be phthalocyanine blue, which can save costs, according to the company. Delta Blue pigments are designed for automotive coatings, but they can also be used in other high performance and industrial applications. Delta Blue pigments offer excellent fastness properties and are transparent with hue neutral flop characteristics that are useful for styling metallic effect colors. While recommended for water-based coatings, Delta Blue 60 pigments are suitable for high solids solvent coatings. More info: Sun Chemical, (973) 404-6007; Web: www.sunchemical.com.
