Chromaflo Technologies Corp., one of the leading independent global providers of colorant products and technologies, will share its tailored approach to color for composites at CAMX 2014, booth #3375, with a showcase of its high-performance and high-strength pigment dispersions.
Chromaflo utilizes a custom approach to color and appearance for composites applications, which involves careful analysis of a customer’s system requirements. Using this approach, Chromaflo’s technical chemists can deliver pigment dispersions that produce desired appearance and consistent performance.
“Each component of a formula can impact final color and appearance,” said Kristine Eisemon, global industry manager – thermosets at Chromaflo. “By taking a customized, consultant-style approach with our customers’ systems, we can develop and select compound formulations that work well with their requirements and help them achieve their specific goals. It is a whole system solution.”
At this year’s CAMX conference, Chromaflo will highlight three lines of pigment dispersions that utilize its custom approach: AM Accumag®, the CF Series and UVSolutions™.
AM Accumag® The Next Generation of Thickener Technology
Accumag® dispersions are the most consistently reactive magnesium oxide dispersions available to the market. The newest technology addition to the Accumag® product line – AM Accumag – is the result of Chromaflo’s innovative breakthrough in quality control methodology and is designed specifically for bromine-free sheet molding compound. The result is a highly controlled and predictable thickening response.
CF Series Technology-Driven Brighter Whites and Stronger Blacks
Chromaflo’s high-strength white and black CF dispersions exceed the industry standard for color strength, performance and appearance. CF white dispersions are ideal for customers looking for a brighter, cleaner-looking white to hide system variations or elevate the look of composite applications. In addition, Chromaflo’s CF polyester black is
50 percent stronger than the industry standard, helping molders and compounders improve efficiency and reduce waste in their systems.
Products Tailored to Deliver Maximum UV Protection and Weathering Performance
Chromaflo’s UVSolutions™ line of pigment dispersions employs a total compound systems approach that is tailored to the resin system and color space. After years of product development and testing, Chromaflo’s technical chemists have identified the optimal combination of pigment and UV additive chemistries to provide superior lightfastness and significant weathering performance improvement over standard pigment dispersions.
