New brilliance in coatings design: Paliocrom® Brilliant Orange from BASF
- New generation of effect pigments
- Ultra-high chroma and excellent hiding power
Paliocrom® Brilliant Orange L 2850 is the first of a new generation of effect pigments from BASF. Exceptional brilliance and ultra-high chroma enable the creation of novel designs in the orange to red shade area.
This innovative pigment is based on iron-oxide-coated aluminum platelets of the thin silver dollar type, which have very fine particle size distribution. The resulting flawless brilliance – together with ultra-high chroma and lightness as well as excellent hiding power – offers scope for fascinating styling options. With its pronounced flop characteristics (light/dark contrast) and strong sparkle, the product allows subtle variations in coatings design.
Paliocrom® Brilliant Orange L 2850 is suitable for both solvent- and water-based systems. Its main applications are high-performance automotive coatings and industrial coatings for computers, telecommunications equipment and electrical appliances. In combination with other effects or colored pigments, the product provides opportunities for a wide variety of different stylings covering the entire color spectrum.
