Surface protection and attractive appearance

Bayferrox® and Colortherm® pigments can be used in different layers of coating systems in the automotive industry (base coats to top coats) for different kinds of vehicles.

Optimum surface protection and an attractive appearance are among the main requirements placed on vehicle coatings. LANXESS inorganic pigments are used in a very wide variety of vehicle coatings. Apart from passenger cars the pigments are also used in coatings for trucks, construction vehicles and trains. Excellent light fastness, weather stability, chemical resistance and outstanding covering power are all essential requirements for such applications.

The High Performance and High Performance Special Pigment ranges, which have been developed specifically for coatings applications, have a narrower specification range for color shade and color strength. In addition, they are distinguished by their high dispersibility. This is achieved by micronization, a very intense milling process which significantly reduces the level of pigment agglomerates.

The Global Competence Center Paint will gladly answer individual customer inquiries with respect to this field of application or to provide further information about LANXESS pigments.
