With this investment of approximately €15 million to the Ludwigshafen and Besigheim sites in Germany, the company underlines its position as one of the leading suppliers of aluminum-based effect pigments which allow customers to create new, trendy coatings with high-quality effects.
The latest addition to the Paliocrom family is the new grade Paliocrom Premium Gold EH 1 (future L 2158), which enriches the golden orange-to-red color range. This newly launched product is a highly saturated, mid-shade effect pigment that delivers superior travel, gloss, and hiding power, the company reported.
Displaying a unique color appearance in thin-film applications, Paliocrom Premium Gold EH 1 exhibits maximum chroma, lightness, and flop behavior. It also features excellent gassing stability and adhesion with just one universal grade and is suitable for solvent- and water-based systems.
