Sun Chemical Introduces Red & Yellow Iron Oxide Pigments to Sunsperse® ECO Range for Paints

Published on 2015-06-09. Author : SpecialChem

NUREMBERG, Germany -- Sun Chemical Performance Pigments added new transparent red and yellow iron oxide pigments to its range of Sunsperse® ECO aqueous pigment dispersions for waterborne emulsion architectural and industrial paints.

The new transparent red and yellow iron oxide pigment dispersions stand out for their high color purity, clarity and reduced haze, making them suitable for a variety of industrial and architectural applications, including waterborne wood stains. The twelve-color range developed for the in-plant production of ready mixed colors, are APEO-free, VOC-free and resin-free, and comply with the European regulation on the limitation of volatile organic compounds (Directive 2004/42/EC).

Sunsperse ECO aqueous dispersions offer high color strength, excellent light and weather fastness, broad compatibility with waterborne systems, outstanding stability to sedimentation and drying out, good wet-rub resistance and viscosity, and narrow specifications. The full line of colors covers 90 percent of all in-plant usage, and will be expanded according to customer needs.

“There are two key trends that we’re seeing in the market,” said Jørn Thorsson, Product Manager, Sun Chemical Performance Pigments. “First, there is a strong trend to provide more eco-friendly architectural paints throughout the world, especially in Europe where the regulations require solvents to be removed from the paint. Second, our customers want vivid and powerful colors that stand out. Our Sunsperse ECO pigment dispersions provide an answer to the eco-friendly trend in the industry, but not only that, they also meet Sun Chemical’s strict standards of providing our customers with products that meet and exceed today’s high expectations of quality, performance and consistency.”
