Clariant’s dedication to enhancing sustainability, functionality and convenience for the industry, will take centre stage at Booth W2.E21-28. Highlights of its recent advances to its portfolio, include:
Supporting the trend to bio-based ingredients & eco-labels
As the industry's first renewable-based, VOC/SVOC-free1 and hazard label-free neutralizing agent, the new 3-in-1, sugar-based Genamin Gluco 50 additive supports formulators in meeting consumer demand for low odour, healthier and easy-to-apply indoor paints.
Genamin Gluco 50 is awarded Clariant’s EcoTain label for sustainability excellence. To date, Clariant offers more than 150 EcoTain products that often
outperform conventional products not only in terms of profitability but also with respect to performance and sustainability.
Improving customer convenience
The Hostatint WI, a range of aqueous, binder-free pigment preparations designed for water-based industrial coatings based on non-ionic and/or anionic wetting and dispersing agents with excellent colour strength and high chroma in water-based industrial coatings.
Visitors can draw insights on the automotive industry's forthcoming colour trends through the Automotive Styling Shades Trendbook 2019, which is based on Clariant’s colour know-how and observations of social trends, topics and industry developments.
Specifically for China
As the domestic market in China continues to grow, Clariant offers products tailor-made and optimized to satisfy the specific needs of the local market, including:
Ceridust 2740 TP, a blend that is easy to incorporate into water- and solvent-borne industrial coating systems. Used in wood coatings it provides excellent matting and high clarity properties while Ceridust 9322 F TP, a PTFE-modified solution, provides very high scratch resistance levels to solvent-borne wood coatings. Both solutions can also be used in powder coatings.
With Exolit AP 428, a new flame retardant based on ammonium polyphosphate, Clariant provides a grade which greatly simplifies the production of waterborne intumescent coatings.
Hostavin 3070 Disp, a light stabilizer dispersion with 52% active content, offers a “label free” alternative to traditional HALS currently used in waterborne systems. Available to global customers, it is of particular relevance to the growing demands for sustainable materials in China. Hostavin 3070 Disp has been awarded the Clariant EcoTain label for its outstanding sustainability and performance profile.
Dispersogen 2778, an APEO-free dispersing agent for pigments, excellent dispersing effect for waterborne pigment preparation of carbon black and organic pigment.
Clariant will be exhibiting at booth no. W2.E21-28 during ChinaCoat 2017 to be held on 15-17 November 2017 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC). A number of technical seminars have been scheduled during ChinaCoat to elaborate on Clariant’s products and invite in-depth discussion with visitors.
