BASF today launched a new red shade yellow pigment, Paliotol(R) Yellow
K 1750, at CAD RETEC 2013, the largest technical conference hosted in
North America that is specifically dedicated to the color and
appearance of plastics. With the help of a new chemistry patented by
BASF, this organic pigment offers customers a cost effective
alternative to heavy metal and diarylide pigments that can be
restricted for use in certain applications. Paliotol Yellow K 1750
can also replace more expensive or over-specified color formulations
and can help streamline a customer's pigment palette.
"Part of being a reliable partner to the plastics industry is always
working to develop new solutions in response to market needs," said
Florencio Topete, Business Director, BASF Plastic Additives. "The new
Paliotol Yellow K 1750 is the latest example and is now part of our
extensive range of additives and colorants. BASF's product
innovation, technical community, knowledge of regulatory landscape
and global footprint that supports security of supply all demonstrate
the added value we offer to customers."
Paliotol Yellow K 1750 is designed for use with PO (polyolefin) and
PVC (poly-vinyl chloride) plastic via extrusion or molding processes.
It can be used for indoor consumer goods such as toys and packaging.
The product sets a new industry benchmark with its coloring
efficiency and technical features, including high color strength,
opacity, excellent processing stability and high resistance to
bleeding in water and migration.
