Published on 2009-10-16. Author : SpecialChem

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Clariant will feature the newest addition to its line of high-performance azo pigments - PV Fast® Red HGR - at the upcoming CAD RETEC 2009 in Savannah, Ga., Oct. 18-20. Clariant will be represented in Exhibitor Spaces 7 & 8 at the show.

PV Fast Red HGR, represented by Colour Index Number Pigment Red 285, is a brilliant yellow-shade red pigment that offers excellent heat stability and fastness properties and does not cause warping.

"PV Fast Red HGR can be mixed easily in combination with our PV Fast Yellow HGR to produce various shades of orange at a very economical cost," says Bill Smith, Technical Manager for Plastics with Clariant's Pigments business. "And this pigment is suitable in use with a wide range of polymers, including polyolefins, polyvinyl chloride, polystyrene, polycarbonate and others."

As one of the leading international manufacturers of specialty chemicals, Clariant offers a comprehensive product portfolio developed for use in a wide range of applications for the plastics industry.

"Clariant makes great effort and takes pride in meeting our customers' needs on the pertinent industry laws and regulations," says Smith. "We have applied to have PV Fast Red HGR registered for food-contact use so that it can join the range of Clariant pigment products already certified to meet the stringent requirements of the FDA (federal Food & Drug Administration) as well as relevant guidelines worldwide."

At RETEC Clariant will also promote colorants from its PV Fast®, Graphtol®, Hostaperm®, Novoperm®, Permanent®, Solvaperm®, Polysynthren® and Hostasol® ranges, products distinguished by outstanding resistance and fastness properties, performance, purity of shade and economy in use. Also showcased will be a broad portfolio of additives products, including Hostanox® and Hostavin® light stabilizers, Licowax®, Licolub®, Licomont® and Licocene® waxes and Exolit® flame retardants.
