announced the release of a new black colorant, the latest addition to its thermoset product line.
The black is associated with Chromaflo’s DL line of products and has a product code of DL-020017.
Created by Chromaflo’s Thermoset technical team, the new black colorant targets the polyurethane market, which encompasses a host of different applications. The colorant is uniquely different in that it contains 40 percent high structure carbon black and its thixotropy allows the product to readily flow with no need for agitation.
Benefits of the DL-020017 new black include:
Ability to achieve a jet black color at lower loadings;
Lower loading provides a cost to use benefit, less impact of the colorant and properties of the final product and less inventory;
A low viscosity, which allows for ease of handling including the ability to pump or meter.
“Our goal in the creation of this new colorant was to fill the need for a high color strength, low viscosity black in the polyurethane market,” Technical Service Representative – Urethanes, Lisa Collette said. “Tested for color strength in an array of polyurethane systems, this new colorant has the 40 percent high structure carbon black and low, stable viscosity that users are looking for. Our goal here at Chromaflo is to create colorants that provide consumers with a fresh look and approach to their products and this new colorant does exactly that.”
The colorant was initially released at the FOAM Expo in Novi, Michigan.
