Clariant launched a new line of pigment dispersions engineered for exact color matching, reducing the time and costs related to batch-to-batch reformulations.
This novel approach answers a direct need of formulators who work on industrial, automotive, maintenance and other demanding protective coatings.
New Hostatint SI pigment dispersions address one of the top challenges for North American manufacturers of solvent-based paints and coatings, the majority of which are used in industrial applications.
“Through discussions with customers, we saw a real need in this region’s extensive industrial coatings market for pigment dispersions that can deliver consistent color eliminating or minimizing formulation adjustments between batches," said Dr. Romesh Kumar, senior Technical Sales manager, North America. "Hostatint SI’s unmatched, broad compatibility will provide welcome relief from this headache, and it’s easy to make the switch. No reworking means great news for optimizing manufacturing time and costs, and maximizing color performance too.”
Hostatint SI pigment dispersions are the first “drop-in ready” solution for alleviating problems frequently caused by a dispersion’s incompatibility with the diversity of industrial coatings bases, namely inconsistent tinting and finished product color float or post-application color rub-up.
Their unmatched compatibility with the broadest range of base chemistries and high-quality Clariant pigments make for a less complex tinting process.
This results in easier batch-to-batch consistency in the finished coating product and fewer potential issues for the end-user. Color performance and shade consistency are also boosted thanks to best-in-class, tighter tint strength and color shade.
The pigment dispersions are suitable for producing or tinting RAL shades, OSHA safety shades, and industrial point-of-sale standard shades in a wide variety of coatings systems.
New Hostatint SI pigment dispersions are available from Clariant’s exclusive distribution partner for North America, Lintech International, and directly from Colorants Solutions USA, a Clariant company.
