COLORTHERM® pigments from LANXESS are inorganic pigments that are particularly suitable for the colouring of plastics. In general, pigments for the colouring of plastics must meet high technical standards, regardless whether it is plastic films, profiles, or fibres that is subjected to colouring.
Owing to short production times and the relatively low shear stress of the machinery, the pigments need good dispersing properties in order to swiftly reach the final colour intensity. They must have high heat resistance and be adequately light-and weather-resistant.
