Falcon Technologies launches ColourFal Zero VOC-free universal colorants

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 water­borne and solventborne architectural, decorative paints.
