At the event, Nitin Vaidya, Senior Technical Manager – Coatings, BU Pigments, presented a technical paper on 'Innovative approach to Colorants', which covered three color solutions for the paints & coatings industry. LVOC pigment preparations range, which is a local innovation for India caters to the rising demand for decorative paints, with low impact on the environment. IR-reflective range is suited for high-rise towers and roof-tops, offering long-lasting exterior finishes. Also, it contributes to substantial cooling and offers aesthetically pleasing effects. Hostatint® A 100-ST range, the newly-developed global range of super-transparent pigment preparations offers brilliant metallic effect shades to high end consumer goods (mobile phones, cameras, computers etc.), two wheelers and wood coatings.
