BASF today launched a new red shade yellow pigment, Paliotol® Yellow K 1750, at CAD RETEC 2013, the largest technical conference hosted in North America that is specifically dedicated to the color and appearance of plastics. With the help of a new chemistry patented by BASF, this organic pigment offers customers a cost effective alternative to heavy metal and diarylide pigments that can be restricted for use in certain applications.
Paliotol Yellow K 1750 can also replace more expensive or over-specified color formulations and can help streamline a customer’s pigment palette.
“Part of being a reliable partner to the plastics industry is always working to develop new solutions in response to market needs,” said Florencio Topete, Business Director, BASF Plastic Additives. “The new Paliotol Yellow K 1750 is the latest example and is now part of our extensive range of additives and colorants. BASF’s product innovation, technical community, knowledge of regulatory landscape and global footprint that supports security of supply all demonstrate the added value we offer to customers.”
Paliotol Yellow K 1750 is designed for use with PO (polyolefin) and PVC (poly-vinyl chloride) plastic via extrusion or molding processes. It can be used for indoor consumer goods such as toys and packaging. The product sets a new industry benchmark with its coloring efficiency and technical features, including high color strength, opacity, excellent processing stability and high resistance to bleeding in water and migration.
