Product Introductions 2018 Coatings / Plastics
As a dynamic and innovative company GEOTECH is continuously investing in the development of new, unique special effect pigments.
This year the Geopearl® Crystal and Geodiamond® product ranges will both be extended by 6 innovative products. The new pearlescent pigments are suitable for use in coatings as well as plastic applications.
The new Geopearl® Crystal Soft products have a particle size distribution of 1 – 15 microns and are coated with Iron Oxide and Titanium Dioxide. These new products provide high coverage in chromatic earth tone effects in the shades; beige, bronze, copper, golden copper and russet.
In a 10 – 60 microns particle size GEOTECH will furthermore launch an unprecedented, high-chromatic intense red pigment, unlike any other red pigment ever seen before. The combination of a synthetic mica based pigment coated with high concentrations Iron Oxide provide incredible reflectivity and extreme colour intensity. Due to its Iron Oxide coating this pigment is an interesting alternative for carmine coated pigments.
The borosilicate based Geodiamond® range will be extended by an XL grade. The particle size distribution of these new pigments is 100 - 500 micron, providing high reflective glittering effects in interference colours. Nowadays the demand for sparkling and glittering effects is increasing. The new Geodiamond® XL range will be perfectly suitable as an alternative for polyester based glitter flakes.
The product introductions will be accompanied by inspiration boxes for coating and plastic applications. They will contain formulation guidelines and inspirational pictures to show the effect in your application.
The new products will officially be launched in April 2018.
