Shepherd Color Introduces Black 30C940 IR Reflective Stir-in Pigment

Published on 2007-09-24. Author : SpecialChem

Cincinnati, Ohio -- The Shepherd Color Company introduces Dynamix™ Black 30C940, a unique, innovative "stir-in" inorganic color pigment to the coatings market. Black 30C940 is also part of the Arctic® range for coatings and can be used widely in color matches to maximize Total Solar Reflectance (TSR), minimize heat build up and reduce overall energy costs. Over twenty years of IR reflective pigment development coupled with the new Dynamix™ technology assures unsurpassed technical expertise from Shepherd Color.

Dynamix™ dispersion characteristics are so superior, conventional milling and dispersion techniques are unnecessary. Dynamix™ "stir-in" pigment technology requires only simple mixing. The time it takes to reach complete dispersion will depend upon the intensity of the mixing equipment but can be achieved in as little as 5 minutes. Dynamix™ is unique because it is not restricted in application. It is compatible with solvent and waterborne coatings systems as well as 100% solids systems and UV cured coatings.

Dynamix™ offers chemists, formulators and colorists the potential to be creative in their approach to coatings development. Color can be added at any stage. The color and tint strength properties are "locked-in" and can be achieved consistently. There are no dispersantsor additional resins to formulate around; Dynamix™ is 100% color. The weather durability, heat stability and chemical resistance you have come to expect from Shepherd pigments is assured with DynamixTM. Shepherd's Arctic® pigments reflect the Infrared portion of the Sun's light. Because IR light contributes greatly towards heat build up, coatings made with Arctic® pigments reduce the temperature of products that are exposed to the sun - without sacrificing color! This can extend product life, cool interior spaces or contents, retard coating degradation, or mimic the spectral properties of foliage for military camouflage. Arctic pigments are used in EnergyStar™-compliant roof coatings, automotive exteriors and interiors, protective coatings, camouflage paints and more.

The Shepherd Color Company is one of the world's leading producers of high performance Complex Inorganic Color Pigments (CICP's), headquartered in Cincinnati, OH in the United States and with sales offices in Belgium, Australia and Japan. Shepherd Color proudly serves major markets, such as Building & Construction, Automotive and Aerospace through customers in the Coatings, Plastics, Glass and Ceramics segments.
