Heat resistant and brilliant: Cathay Industries introduces new yellow iron oxides

11 April 2017

New CATHAYCOAT pigments were the highlight at Cathay Industries’ stand at the European Coatings Show (ECS) 2017 in Nuremberg: The manufacturer of synthetic iron oxide pigments presented its Yellows YA22HR and YS23HR offering increased heat resistance. Numerous visitors took the opportunity to keep themselves informed about these innovations and CATHAY’s other latest developments.

Pigments with elevated heat stability
As latest developments the company introduced its iron oxide yellow pigments with elevated heat stability. CATHAYCOAT Yellow YA22HR and CATHAYCOAT Yellow YS23HR withstand temperatures well over 200°C. Compared to traditionally used zinc ferrites, Cathay’s new products are characterised by clean and bright colour shades. Thanks to its micronised characteristic, CATHAYCOAT Yellow YA22HR offers even higher levels of brilliance and optimal dispersibility in the users’ systems. The two pigments are mainly utilised in coil and powder coatings, as well as in a variety of plastics applications.

Range of natural iron oxides
Visitors had the opportunity to learn about products from Hoover Color. For the first time, Cathay’s new division was exhibiting alongside its new parent company. The presentation included semi-transparent Raw and Burnt Umbers as well as transparent EnvironOxides as products for a ‘green’ approach.
