Xfast® Easy Color – the first solid dispensing system for point-of-sale from BASF
In tackling the challenges of liquid dosing in the point-of-sale (POS) business, the use of dry pigment preparations offers a next-generation alternative that can alleviate many of the old issues.
With the introduction of the innovative XF200 dispenser, the world’s first solid dispensing system for POS, Xfast® Easy Color enables paint manufacturers to revolutionize the market for decorative paints and coatings. The new dispenser, which will be commercially available in August, allows customers to dose customized formulations of Xfast® solid pigment preparations directly into the base paint.
The dry dosing system Xfast® Easy Color comes with benefits such as clean and easy handling, scarcely any colorant waste and vastly reduced maintenance and servicing requirements. With solid colorants, there are no time-consuming tasks and dosing problems like purging, dry out, mis-tints or viscosity changes in the colorant. By tackling the major cost burdens of liquid systems, switching to dry can significantly reduce costs and improve the everyday handling of POS systems.
