24 février 2015Colorants et pigments (additif plasturgie)
Sittard/Nuremberg, 24 March 2015. Chromaflo Technologies demonstrates why they are the experts in colorants and pigment dispersions at this year’s European Coatings Show in Nuremberg, Germany 21-23 April 2015. Visitors to Chromaflo’s booth in hall 7, stand 167 will be able to examine the colorants and software that underline the company’s integrated approach.
Chromaflo Technologies brings decades of experience and their global reach to the architectural and industrial coatings as well as thermoset markets. With more than 80 years of industry experience in colorant systems and chemical pigment dispersions, the Chromaflo family of product brands includes more than 200 product lines and 7,000 products, serving customers across six continents. By providing the broadest portfolio of technologies in the market, Chromaflo Technologies creates chemistries to solve the most complex performance, color and appearance challenges.
The next step in tinting data analysis
The Innovatint Tinting Management Centre is a new tool which can be used in conjunction with Chromaflo’s existing Innovatint software. “Through this tool, personalized tinting statistics can be accessed through an internet connection with a tablet, laptop or mobile phone.”, says Alain De Haes, Product Manager of Innovatint. It’s also possible to control the tinting machine with a tablet, allowing formulations to be tinted remotely. Chromaflo can assist in cross referencing this data with other information, for instance, demographics. An additional module monitors the tinting machine and notifies the user if an error occurs whilst storing maintenance history.
An innovative packaging option
Paint companies actively seek methods to decrease costs while making the right choice for the environment. Chromaflo Technologies has considered this with the introduction of pouch packaging for colorants. Compared to standard colorant packaging, the pouch results in less waste in terms of colorant residue and a lower volume of packaging waste. According to Jeroen Hofman, Director of Product Management and Marketing, the pouch is the future of colorant packaging, “The pouch has a lower CO2 footprint and increased user friendliness, which is why we see it as an innovative and sustainable choice.”
Colorants for every tinting need
Chromaflo Technologies will display its comprehensive portfolio of architectural and industrial colorants for POS and in-plant tinting. This includes the Colortrend® architectural colorants, Chroma-Chem® industrial colorants, solar-reflective colorants within the Novapint™ D and Monicolor™ C ranges and the Hydrasperse™ EU and Solvasperse™ AK in-plant options.
Colorants need to provide color reproducibility, smooth functionality and technical stability, while having no effect on the properties of the final coating. Chromaflo Technologies offers this through their extended Chroma-Chem® industrial portfolio, including 13 product lines for special applications, compatible with a range of different resin types, including polyurethane, polyaspartic, epoxy and acrylic.
Novapint™ D colorants are developed for water based façade paints and plasters, while the universal Monicolor™ C range is developed for architectural applications including solvent based paints. Both ranges offer an intelligent combination of conventional colorants that have excellent solar heat reflection properties, and an innovative black colorant to replace carbon black or iron oxide black. These unique ranges of colorants enable the formulation of dark colors that achieve less heat absorption compared to conventional colorants.
Chromaflo Technologies’ in-plant portfolio includes Hydrasperse™ EU for water based applications and Solvasperse™ AK for solvent-based applications. Designed for in-plant production use, their high color strength and batch to batch consistency provides a good base for reproducible and economical colors. The colorant ranges are designed to ensure a good price/performance balance with a number of economical colorants for a lower overall tint cost.
Chromaflo Technologies will be showing all their latest innovations at the European Coatings Show 2015 in hall 7, stand 167.
