Nubiola Expands Production of Zinc Ferrites Inorganic Pigments for Powder, Coil Coatings & more

Published on 2014-02-27. Author : SpecialChem

As a result of the outstanding success of our Zinc Ferrites, Nubifer K Series, Nubiola have recently decided to make a significant investment to increase their production capacity by around 33%. This expansion is going to be fully implemented in the last quarter of 2014.

Their Zinc Ferrites, Nubifer K Series, are beige, tan color complex inorganic pigments with a ZnFe2O4 spinel crystal structure that withstand high temperatures, besides providing excellent light, weather and chemical fastness, and high dimensional stability in Polyolefins, hiding power and opacity.

"Two Zinc Ferrites within our product range are especially worth mentioning: Nubifer Y-905K and Nubifer Y-805K, being the latter the most heat stable Zinc Ferrite in the whole market (it withstands 300°C for five minutes in Polypropylene)", explains Fabiana Requeijo, Global Iron Oxides Product Manager. "Their excellent high temperature fastness makes them suitable for Plastics applications, as well as for their use in Powder, Coil and Stoving Coatings. They are a perfect solution to develop heat stable beige or tan colors, as well as weatherable "natural" green shades with good opacity in combination with Organic Blues and Greens. The coloration cost of red and brown color shades based on High Performance Organic Reds can also be significantly reduced when introducing Nubifer K Series in the formulation because our Zinc Ferrites can partially replace Organics whilst maintaining their bright shade and high performance".

Nubifer K Series is another clear example that the focus is the production of pigments for highly demanding applications, guaranteeing consistently good quality and providing our best technical, sales and supply support. Their Nubiola product range includes Red, Yellow, Black and Brown Iron Oxides, Heat Resistant Yellow Iron Oxides and Zinc Ferrites.
