Holliday Pigments of the U.K. is showing new developments in ultramarine pigments for plastics at NPE 2009. The company is exhibiting with its U.S. distributor, Brenntag Specialties Inc. (BSI), S. Plainfield, N.J. Three new additions to Holliday’s Premier and Prestige ranges are slightly redder than the previous grades. The new entries are a standard version, a very dry grade for highly loaded color concentrates, and a low-dust Prestige grade, which uses a low-molecular-weight carrier resin. Also new is Holliday’s 6117 (Premier XAR) acid-resistant grade. It is for applications like stadium seating, which is exposed to both acid rain and strong sunlight. An inert coating on the pigment particle adds acid resistance and light stability. With previous acid-resistant coatings, the coating could abrade during pigment dispersion and reduce acid resistance. Premier XAR coating is said to be more abrasion resistant, giving 50% better acid protection. (800) 732-0562 • www.brenntagspecialties.com
