Clariant completes color range of “super-transparent” pigment preparations

in RELEASE EXPOSITOR

by Fabio Humberg

• For fast color design of metallic & mineral effect shades
• For coloration of consumer goods, wood, glass and coil coatings
• Supports lifestyle trend direction in 3C applications, car refinish, sports gear and more

 

Clariant unveils Hostatint™ A 100-ST, a range of super-transparent preparations based on non-halogenated pigments to support the eye-catching metallic and mineral effects as well as new shades for surface and contour enhancements so desired for today’s lifestyle products.

Launched at European Coatings Show 2017, the new Hostatint A 100-ST range features nine ready-to-use, highly-transparent pigment preparations that offer the entire color circle to solvent-based paint systems. Very fine pigment particles, excellent dispersion and long-term stabilization are the prerequisites to enhance effects with color intensity similar to dyes but with very high light and weather fastness, and no migration or bleeding.

In addition to its performance benefits, Hostatint A 100-ST helps the coatings industry to open up manufacturers’ creativity options. For electronics OEMs, the halogen-free pigment molecules support the formulation of bright green color shades that meet industry restrictions on halogen content.

Industrial coatings with the super transparency of Hostatint A 100-ST can be used to add a quality appeal to applications by emphasizing the visibility of a substrate such as glass, wood or metal. Super transparent colored coatings, virtually invisible over a black substrate, are also particularly effective in highlighting black/color contrast.

Hostatint A 100-ST pigment preparations are easy and safe to use. They have low viscosity, are widely compatible with solvent-based paint systems, and a very high flashpoint results in safer storage, transportation and handling. The stability of the colorants contributes to a long shelf life.

Bernhard Stengel-Rutkowski, Senior Global Technical Marketing Manager at Clariant, comments: “From cellphones to bikes and cars, metallic and mineral effect shades are becoming increasingly important for industrial applications. There’s also growing interest in using high transparency to enhance glass or wood surface properties. As a full range of pigment preparations, new Hostatint A 100-ST enables the fast and flexible formulation of a wide range of color shades for transparent applications. In addition, they are providing a cost-efficient way for manufacturers to address new coating trends in the market segments.”

in RELEASE EXPOSITOR

by Fabio Humberg

• Genamin® Gluco 50: novel renewable-based additive without hazard labeling for indoor paints & lacquers


• 3-in-1: neutralizer, compatibilizer & stabilizer, able to outperform current market standards


• Ideal for ecolabel certified paints: sustainable & performance-boosting from a single VOC-free ingredient


Clariant, a world leader in specialty chemicals, breaks new ground for the indoor paint and coatings segment with the launch of the industry’s first renewable-based, VOC/SVOC-free and hazard label-free neutralizing agent: Genamin Gluco 50.

The new sugar-based additive innovation supports formulators in meeting consumer demand for low odor, healthier and easy to apply indoor paints and lacquers. Its introduction is also significant for ecolabel certified paints, where a reduction in additives can help to keep a formulation within low VOC/SVOC limits.

Genamin Gluco 50 combines an outstanding sustainable profile with performance-boosting properties that set it apart from existing neutralizing options for waterborne coatings. In contrast to standard neutralizers, such as ammonia or caustic soda, Genamin Gluco 50 does more than adjust the pH-value of a formulation to around 8-10 to create a stable paint system with minor interactions between the paint. It also enhances the performance and quality profile of the waterborne coating.

Genamin Gluco 50 acts as a 3-in-1 additive, being neutralizer, compatibilizer and stabilizer in one additive. The product achieves additional functionalities and proven advantages for the formulation, such as improving storage stability and pigment compatibility, and reducing flash-rust formation. In certain aspects, its performance is proven to be superior to that of alternative multifunctional additives such as aminomethyl propanol (AMP), currently under scrutiny and substance evaluation by the ECHA (European Chemicals Agency). Genamin Gluco 50 offers the following extensive benefits.
• Improves paint lifetime and storage stability even in colder regions. Gloss lacquers containing Genamin Gluco 50 show no syneresis, sedimentation or changes to pH-value or viscosity after storage at 50°C for 28 days. The lacquer also remains stable after 5 freeze-thaw cycles.
• Increases tinting strength thanks to better pigment compatibility. Waterborne paints and pigment dispersions neutralized with Genamin Gluco 50 show higher tinting strength.
• Enhances metal protection due to reduced flash rust formation. It also helps to protect the coating film against discoloration caused by rusting.
• Low-odor, easy to use paints: Genamin Gluco 50 is VOC/SVOC free and has a pleasant smell. It also helps to make paints and coatings easy to apply.
• No negative influence on paint properties, such as gloss or on drying or hardness behavior.
Extensive laboratory testing confirms that Genamin Gluco 50 outperforms AMP in the areas of storage stability, flash rust, pigment compatibility and odor.

Alexander Snell, Head of Sales Industrial Applications EMEA, Clariant Business Unit Industrial & Consumer Specialties, comments: “Achieving multifunctionality from a single VOC-free additive overcomes a major challenge for paint formulators faced, in particular, with the low VOC/SVOC limits of the ecolabels such as the German Blue Angel. Genamin Gluco 50 is the ideal component for the paints of today and tomorrow. It helps paint formulators to replace ingredients that are under scrutiny, offering a package of high performance and eco-related benefits that satisfy paint manufacturers, professional painters and consumers.”

Genamin Gluco 50 has been awarded the EcoTain® label for its outstanding sustainable profile. EcoTain® is Clariant’s label for sustainability excellence products and solutions that significantly exceed sustainability market standards, have best-in-class performance and contribute overall to sustainability efforts of the company and its customers.

There’s no compromising the coating system with BYK additives

in RELEASE EXPOSITOR

by Fabio Humberg

The times when a decorative coating for interior or exterior use in the architectural sector was simply paint without any function are long since gone. Likewise, the regulatory demands on coating producers increase significantly from year to year.
BYK, one of the world's leading suppliers of tailor-made additives for the paint and coatings industry, has been working for many years on steadily enhancing the functionality and look of architectural coatings that combine both optimum performance and environmental friendliness.
New product developments that BYK will be presenting for the first time during the European Coatings Show (April 4 - 6 in Nuremberg) satisfy these requirements.
DISPERBYK-2062 is a VOC- and APEO-free wetting and dispersing additive for the manufacture of universal pigment concentrates. It augments the existing BYK portfolio in terms of improving the compatibility of inorganic pigment concentrates in both solvent-borne and aqueous systems, and satisfies all the regulations and quality labels in the architectural coatings sector.
Another focus of the development work has centered on the systematic expansion of the product portfolio for rheology additives. As a result, BYK is presenting both a new high-shear and a new low-shear thickener, which are impressive not only due to their absence of APEO, VOCs, S-VOCs, tin and propylene glycol, but also due to their extreme effectiveness.
OPTIFLO-T 1010 is a high-performance liquid rheology additive for aqueous systems. Due to its specific impact in the high-shear range, this additive provides a clear improvement in syneresis, spatter resistance and brushability.
Additionally, a newly developed low-shear thickener will be introduced at ECS. This additive specifically creates pseudoplastic flow behavior, which impacts positively on the anti-sagging properties and the storage stability in aqueous coating systems.
The additives are practically suitable for any application, provide a high degree of effectiveness and reduce the complexity of the coating system.
