Solvay Increases Capacity of its Neolor Product Line
Significant kiln investment and process debottlenecking has enabled Solvay S.A., Brussels, Belgium, to increase capacity for its Neolor product line by 50 %. This extra-capacity allows Solvay to serve the fast growing market demand for high stability inorganic pigments.
Solvay Neolor is a unique range of rare earth inorganic plastic coloration pigments providing color tones from light orange to red and deliver benefits such as exceptional weather resistance and outstanding thermal stability. It is suitable for glass reinforced plastics as the mechanical properties of the glass fiber remain unchanged.
Plastic applications containing Neolor are protected from accumulating high temperatures. An exceptional characteristic is the excellent infrared reflection properties especially noticeable in applications such as roofing tiles where this feature improves insulation properties. Neolor can also be extremely efficient in powder coatings applications.
