COLOUR BLACK FW 255 Carbon Black pigment sets a new bar for high jetness, coloristic performance, and compatibility with both water-borne and solvent-borne systems. It enables formulators to maintain performance and coloristic properties while migrating to water-borne formulations.
“COLOUR BLACK FW 255 is especially suited for automotive OEM and refinish systems,” said Tom Papasso, Marketing Manager, Coatings and Special Applications, Americas. “With the increasing automotive production in Mexico and the blossoming OEM supplier industry, we believe COLOUR BLACK FW 255 will play an important and useful role here.”
The second grade that benefits from Orion’s new aftertreatment capabilities is SPECIAL BLACK 40, which Orion Engineered Carbons introduced at the European Coatings Show in April. A Specialty Carbon Black for medium- to high-jet coatings, SPECIAL BLACK 40 provides exceptional dispersibility and stability in industrial applications. It works in all coating formulations -- solvent-based, water-based, high solids and powder coatings -- providing formulators with enormous flexibility.

➢ “COLOUR BLACK FW 255 -- High Performance Black Pigment for High Solids Systems including OEM and Refinish” July 1, 2 pm, Hall C.
