Hostatint Black E-BLN 30

Pigment Black 7

The Hostatint E pastes are a range of pigment preparations designed for water-based industrial coatings based on a water-soluble acrylic carrier resin, neutralized with ammonia. The pastes are produced within narrow tolerances of color and color strength allowing highly consistent paint production path with manual and automatic dispensers. Hostatint E are manufactured without alkyl phenol ethoxylated (APEO) additives. These pigment preparations are compatible with water-based industrial coatings, especially low VOC industrial coatings.*Pre-testing in the specific coating system is recommended as the Heubach testing procedure cannot cover all possible cases. The colour index data relates to the basic pigment.  * As defined in EU directive 2004/42/EC, annex II, phase II. VOC standards and regulations vary by location. Product specific VOC information is available to customers upon request. It is the responsibility of the coatings manufacturer to determine standard compliance and appropriate claim for their products.
