“Zeitgeist” is one of the few English words borrowed from Germany, the home of Heubach colors. It refers to the “spirit of the time”, its main views and emotions.
The new Heubach 2023 Decorative Color Trends consist of four-color palettes with 21 color trends including The Color of the Year (COTY) 2023 – GOOD JINN, a dark and intense blue hue which is great for drawing the focus of a room to some special feature – a large window or a nice painting or piece of furniture.
Easily dispersable pigments
Heubach’s range of next generation pigments simplifies the paint manufacturing process by avoiding the additional milling step. Eliminating bead milling carries a lot of benefits such as reduced production time (up to -85%) and lower energy costs (up to -90%), which is both profitable (up to -30 % cost savings) and sustainable. Additionally, reduced amounts of additives and less cleaning effort is necessary and less waste water generated.
Compared to conventional pigments, the time for bead-milling can be reduced. In many cases, expensive bead-mill operations can be completely replaced by simple dissolver dispersion.
Several of these pigments can be combined in one mill base formulation or co-dispersed with inorganic pigments to achieve a specific shade. This simplified process reduces manufacturing costs, improves productivity, and offers lower cost options.
