Cadmolith colors are red and yellow lithopone cadmium sulfides and selenides with good hiding power, good resistance to light and heat, inertness, and insolubility in organic media. Full-strength pure yellows, oranges, reds, and maroons recommended for use in color concentrates. Tinting strength and hiding power of the pure types are double those of lithopone types and recommended for coloring film and sheet when minimum pigment content and maximum opacity are needed. Certified as nonhazardous for disposal under current EPA regulations.
Silcron amorphous, fine-particle silica gel in a variety of grades performs as a thixotrope and flatting agent, in addition to preserving clarity and smoothness of finish. Improves pigment dispersion and moisture control; eliminates blocking and plate-out; improves mar resistance or pencil and ink receptivity; and ensures smoother, uninterrupted flow of dry powders. A nontoxic, chemically inert powder averaging 4 to 8 microns can be dryblended with resin or pigment powders, compounded into resin melts, or be incorporated into a masterbatch or concentrate. Compatible with a range of thermoplastics.
Lyondell Chemical Co., Houston, has agreed to sell its Millennium Inorganic Chemicals subsidiary in Hunt Valley, Md., the world’s second-largest producer of titanium dioxide.
With prices going up and up, and supplies getting snugger, it's time to re-examine the available extender pigments that can make TiO2 go further.
