New Sicopal® inorganic pigments from BASF Colors & Effects.


New Sicopal® inorganic pigments from BASF Colors & Effects.

It is always good to have new pigments to offer in the Industrial and Architectural coatings markets to help expand the colour space available to formulators. BASF have introduced two new Sicopal® inorganic pigments in Red and Turqoise hues to extend the range.

Sicopal® Red L3050 is a warm and vibrant opaque yellow-shade PR290. With exceptional saturation and outstanding heat & weather resistance this new release allows formulators to extend design options in both interior and exterior coatings. With no labelling, the new red is an ideal candidate for lead-chrome replacement. The ideal formulation partner for chromatic and durable reds in the most demanding applications.

At the other end of the spectrum we have the ideal combination of calm and refreshing in the new Sicopal® Turquoise L8215, an inorganic PG50 for industrial and architectural coatings. Again the product offers high temperature stability and very high colour strength. With high alkali resistance this pigment is especially suited to silicate-based façade systems. An eye-catching addition to the blue-green palette to enhance the quality and look of performance coatings.

From one end of the spectrum to the other, Sicopal has it covered! BTC UK will have information on the whole Sicopal® range available at Surfex 2020 where we look forward to meeting you on Stand 203.
