Shepherd Adds Blue 10C595 to its Range of Arctic® Infrared Reflecting Color Pigments

Published on 2011-11-21. Author : SpecialChem

The color blue is evokes thoughts and imagery of honesty, loyalty, integrity and fidelity. The Shepherd Color Company announces glossy Blue 10C595. Its stability, bright color, inertness and high gloss properties make it a True Blue™ performing pigment.

Blue 10C595

Blue 10C595 has a high solar reflectivity (30%), so it is a powerful addition to the Arctic® Infrared Reflecting Color Pigments. It is preferentially used in coatings applications where low heat build-up and/or exceptional durability are required. Complex inorganic color pigments (CICP), ceramic pigment, or mineral pigment excel at applications where stable color is needed in extreme environments - high UV exposure, high heat systems, and some chemical resistant formulations is C.I Pigment Blue 28 (Cobalt Aluminate Blue Spinel). All of the previous red-shade blues have a significantly higher oil absorption and higher surface area. Blue 10C595 has significantly lower surface area and resin demand and this means more Gloss! The new Blue 10C595 meets numerous regulations governing packaging, recycling and toys such as AP (89)1, AS 2070-1999, EN 71.3, BfR, CONEG, RoHS, WEEE, ELV, and TCLP.
