Clariant, a world leader in speciality chemicals, invites aluminium anodizers, product designers and engineers visiting Aluminium 2018 to heighten their creativity with the latest high-durability, sustainable colour solutions for aluminum finishing.
Centre stage at Booth G13 Hall 12 will be a new magenta shade with a unique level of light and weather fastness that is perfect for adding long-lasting vibrancy to indoor and outdoor applications.
Adding to its appeal, the single dye formulation is heavy metal-free, non-bleeding and easy to handle.
It shows good dye bath stability and enables a stable dyeing process.
Clariant will be joined by Omya (Schweiz) AG, the exclusive distribution partner for its aluminium finishing portfolio in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, to demonstrate the product enhancing capabilities offered by its complete portfolio of Swiss-made colourants, process chemicals and special printing inks for sub-eloxal printing.
Clariant supports the industry with a wide range of products, such as heavy-metal free dyes (Sanodye®), borax-free degreasers/cleaners, and nickel-free sealing solutions, for improving the sustainability profile of finishing processes or products.
Thomas Heber, Technical Marketing Aluminum Europe, Business Unit Pigments at Clariant commented: “Aluminium lends an extra touch of quality to a wide range of applications.
"As segments such as electronics, cosmetics packaging, appliances, automotive and transportation, sports goods and also architecture focus on creating enhanced consumer experiences, we are pleased to draw on our long history of supporting the anodizing industry worldwide and introduce easy-to-use vibrant, eye-catching colours that extend designers’ creativity and increase end-user value perceptions.”
Aluminium 2018 will be held at the Messe Düsseldorf, Germany, from October 9-11, 2018.
