FP-Pigment Series

  • The FP-Pigment series consist of titanium dioxide which is fixed with calcium carbonate
  • They have been manufactured since 1996 in Finland, Germany and the USA by using a patented process
  • Because of their high opacity, the FP-Pigment grades enable a partial substitution of titanium dioxide
  • With matt formulations this can be up to 30 percent, while with gloss paints the figure is up to 10 percent
  • In addition to providing high opacity, the pigments also improve wet abrasion and stain resistance, have a high UV reflectivity, and have gloss retention and color fastness
  • The FP-Pigment grades can be used in aqueous as well as solvent-based coating systems and printing inks
  • The products are also suitable for corrosion protection coatings, powder coatings as well as can and coil coatings

Products for Paint, Coating & Printing Ink

Karlheinz Schuster, Vice President Sales and Marketing at KRAHN CHEMIE explains: "By using FP-Pigments’ products, the CO2 balance in coatings can be demonstrably reduced. The products are an ideal complement to our extensive product portfolio for the paint, coating and printing ink industry, which covers all important raw material groups including additives, binders and pigments."
