Shepherd Color announced the launch of its new specialty Chromium Oxide Green 30C659.
Shepherd Color has more than 90 years of experience developing, optimizing, and manu-facturing its range of complex inorganic color pigments. This addition to their specialty performance Dynamix easily-dispersed and Arctic IR Reflective pigment lines, adds yet another pigment to their extensive color options.
Chromium Oxide Green, also known as C.I. Pigment Green 17, is widely used in high-performance color matches and has wide regulatory approvals and inclusion in chemical registries around the world. Green 30C659 is an addition to the Arctic IR Reflective line of pigments which have become the standard for use in “cool coatings” because of their po-tential to reduce energy usage in building products.
Shepherd Color’s Green 30C659 incorporates its Dynamix technology, which removes the time consuming, energy-intensive, and variable pigment grinding step in laboratory de-velopment, scale-up and full production.
Green 30C659 is all inorganic and doesn’t have any organic dispersion aids or resins in-cluded that might compromise the performance of systems incorporating the pigment. This unique blending of properties makes the pigment a cornerstone of any sustainable coating or plastic system.
Common uses for Green 30C659 are high-performance coatings such as coil coating, ex-trusion spray, automotive, industrial, architectural, powder and other coatings. It can also be used in plastics and engineering polymers, especially in thin films and fibers. The pig-ment is optimized for easy dispersion and has the following characteristics:
• Dark green color
• High Total Solar Reflectance (TSR)
• High opacity and heat stability
• Compatible with wide range of water and solvent systems and plastics
Green 30C659 is a great partner to Shepherd Color’s other innovative Arctic IR Reflective pigments helping customers to expand their inorganic durable and weatherable color space options.
