Chromaflo Technologies presents its low VOC line of productsChromaflo Technologies Presents its Low

07 March 2016

Chromaflo Technologies demonstrates why it is an expert in colourants and pigment dispersions at this year’s American Coatings Show in Indianapolis, IN April 12-14. Visitors to Chromaflo’s booth 1240 will be able to examine the colourants and software that underline the company’s integrated approach.

Chromaflo Technologies brings decades of experience and its global reach to the architectural and industrial coatings, as well as thermoset markets. With more than 80 years of industry experience in colourant systems and chemical pigment dispersions, the Chromaflo family of product brands includes more than 200 product lines and 7000 products, serving customers across six continents. By providing the broadest portfolio of technologies in the market, Chromaflo Technologies creates chemistries to solve the most complex performance, colour and appearance challenges.

Some of the products featured will be:

Colortrend® 808 Line

Chromaflo’s Colortrend® 808 standard and 808 high performance low-VOC and APE-free universal colourants have minimal impact on paint properties. They have low odour and excellent rheological properties. These colourants have a broader colour space potential, as well as better fade resistance and improved opacity. The tight quality specifications make it possible to use Colortrend colourants both volumetrically for point of sale and gravimetrically for in-plant use.

Colortrend® 871 Line

The Colortrend® 871 Series of colourants are also low-VOC, APE-free, high strength colourants. These are pourable colour pastes that are cost-effective, highly concentrated aqueous dispersions containing high quality CI pigments. They have a very wide colour range, are binder-free and have excellent colour development in aqueous decorative coatings.

Chroma-Chem® 897 Line

The Chroma-Chem® colourants are the next generation of high-strength, low-VOC colourants designed for use in a wide variety of water-based industrial coatings. These provide a broader colour space, excellent durability, light fastness and chemical resistance. They feature best-in-class quality for colour retention in a wide range of aqueous chemistries.

UCD® E Line

Chromaflo’s UCD® E line of colourants have been formulated for use in most water-based industrial coatings, including automotive OEM, concrete protection, marine and protective coatings. They have excellent colour performance with no negative impact on the final properties of the coating and also have the added benefit of improved water resistance and block resistance.


Chromaflo’s UCD® VXS colourants have been designed for use in low-VOC, solvent-based industrial coatings. The colourants contain many of the same components found in the UCD V Line, but are formulated with only VOC-exempt solvents. This allows coatings formulators to meet more challenging VOC regulations, while maintaining superb colour performance. These products have closely controlled colour strength and viscosity to permit reproducible colour matches by volumetric matching dispensers or weight measurement in the plant.

Core Strength

Chromaflo takes pride in co-developing products with its customers. Chromaflo’s core strength is assisting customers in making the right selection to achieve the best balance between cost and performance. It continuously listens to the voice of its customers and in response has advanced these product technologies so that they may achieve superior results.
