Clariant Expands its Range of Organic Pigments
In order to respond to market needs, Clariant International Ltd., Muttenz, Switzerland, has developed a new range of organic pigments and polymer soluble dyes fulfilling the legal regulations as well as specific industry standards, with a particular focus on the important topics of halogen content and lead chromate content in plastics applications.
This comprehensive product range of high quality Low Halogen Controlled (LHC) colorants was designed to support efforts to reduce the halogen content of, for example, E&E devices, consumer goods, and toys. The 13 organic pigments and 2 polymer soluble dyes allow customers to comply with IEC 61249-2-21 guidelines. The halogen content in these pigments is certified to be lower than 500 ppm (Bromine and Chlorine) and documented on Clariant’s Certificate of Analysis. They marketed under PV Fast, Graphtol, Polysynthren and Solvaperm trade names with the LHC suffix indicating their low, controlled halogen content.
