Clariant, a provider of specialty chemicals, is set to exhibit latest high-durability, sustainable color solutions for aluminum finishing at Aluminium 2018.
Center stage at Booth G13 Hall 12 will be a new magenta shade with a unique level of light and weather fastness that is perfect for adding long-lasting vibrancy to indoor and outdoor applications.
Adding to its appeal, the single dye formulation is heavy metal-free, non-bleeding and easy to handle. It shows good dye bath stability and enables a stable dyeing process.
Clariant will be joined by Omya (Schweiz) AG, the exclusive distribution partner for its aluminum finishing portfolio in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, to demonstrate the product enhancing capabilities offered by its complete portfolio of Swiss-made colorants, process chemicals and special printing inks for sub-eloxal printing.
Clariant supports the industry with a wide range of products, such as heavy-metal free dyes (Sanodye®), borax-free degreasers/cleaners, and nickel-free sealing solutions, for improving the sustainability profile of finishing processes or products.
Thomas Heber, Technical Marketing Aluminum Europe, Business Unit Pigments at Clariant comments: “Aluminum lends an extra touch of quality to a wide range of applications.
“As segments such as electronics, cosmetics packaging, appliances, automotive and transportation, sports goods and also architecture focus on creating enhanced consumer experiences, we are pleased to draw on our long history of supporting the anodizing industry worldwide and introduce easy-to-use vibrant, eye-catching colors that extend designers’ creativity and increase end-user value perceptions.”
