Economical solutions for the efficient coloration of plastics used for housing and pipes. Sustainable, safe solutions to support compliance with stringent regulations and industry standards
Outdoor elements need excellent light- and weather-fast pigments to withstand the high demands that are made on their appearance and durability. Colored products, or gas or water pipes, need to maintain their appearance throughout a building’s lifetime; they must satisfy criteria for heat stability, as well as safety and environmental standards. Whatever your requirements, we can guide you through our broad range of organic pigments to find the right solution for your applications.
In the E&E sector, choosing the right coloration for your products can be tricky – a balancing act between brilliant aesthetics, safety, and sustainability. PVC cables are an important market: colorants need to fulfill specific requirements, including low di-electrical values and excellent dispersion. In this sector, requirements for purity levels of colorants often exceed legal regulations: we can help you find exactly what you need for your applications.
Colorants for the construction industry
If you’re in the construction sector, you’re looking for coloration solutions that not only last a lifetime but comply with thermal stability requirements and safety standards. Many components for the construction industry, including window profiles, doors, and fences, require excellent light and weather fastness. When films are used, pigment dispersion is especially important. To ensure the results you expect, it’s therefore important to choose the right colorants. Heubach offers economical solutions for organic pigments that color plastics more efficiently, using less energy and saving you costs. We’re here to help you identify the right products for your applications, whatever your requirements.
Colorants for pipes
Pipe coloration can be a challenge. Correct pigment selection is critical: depending on the type of pipes – whether they’re for gas, water, or consumables – standards and regulations have to be fulfilled. With many years’ experience in this field, we can create customized coloration that meets the most demanding requirements for pipe applications, using organic pigments that make your production process cleaner, safer for consumers and for the environment, and more efficient.
Coloration of PVC cables
PVC still has the highest share in cable production, even though new materials, including XLPE, are continuing to develop strongly. Colorants need to fulfill specific requirements, including low di-electrical values and excellent dispersion. In this sector, requirements for purity levels of colorants often exceed legal regulations. We can help you find exactly what you need for your applications.
Color solutions for OEMs
OEMs in the E&E sector have tough requirements and usually require low halogen pigments and dyes in their devices. For the coloration of polyamide, which is widely used in these applications, we’ve developed a special range of organic pigments and polymer soluble dyes which offer sustainable, safe solutions to support your compliance with increasingly stringent legal regulations and specific industry standards.
