Published on 2007-04-05. Author : SpecialChem

Ciba is launching a new-generation, high-performance orange diketo-pyrrolo-pyrrole (DPP) pigment at the European Coatings Show in Nuremberg (May 8-10, 2007). Ciba® IRGAZIN® DPP Cosmoray™ Orange extends the attainable color space and enhances appearance and shade brightness. It widens design scope, enabling the creation of new shades and styles, not only in the orange color space but also in the red, where, in combination with other pigments, it can be used to create a yellow shift.

"IRGAZIN® DPP CosmorayTM Orange takes color to new destinations," says Siegfried Winkelbeiner, Global Head of Ciba's Coatings Business Line. "This versatile, pure orange pigment can serve as a basis for a broad range of unique shades varying from bright golden orange, to deep, sparkling red."

IRGAZIN® DPP CosmorayTM Orange incorporates all the benefits of diketo-pyrrolo-pyrrole (DPP) chemistry, including outstanding durability and very high saturation. High transparency makes it ideal for combination with effect or other high- performance pigments, allowing wide scope for individual styles and designs; high color strength makes it an outstanding shading component. It is suitable for water-based as well as solvent-based systems and does not affect rheology or migration resistance.
