Innovation driven by customer needs:
Customers have frequently asked us for pigment dispersions that render a sparking or metallic effect to composites. In response, our R&D team has developed and launched the Sparkle Pigments. This product can be used with polyester resins, epoxy resins and urethane resins. In the FRP (fiberglass reinforced plastics) industry this will enable molders to manufacture exciting commercial products. In the epoxy and polyurethane flooring segments, sparking floors can be a reality in restaurants, cafeterias, clubs, pubs, theaters, office lobbies and even homes.
Innovation for safety requirements:
Globally, the road safety departments mandate good visibility for drivers, especially at night. Moreover, obstacles that seem innocuous during the day become an imminent danger to life. In response, our R&D team has developed Fluorescent Emulsion Paints that are water based, which render a tenacious strong polymeric colored film on the substrate upon drying. When light shines on the fluorescent pigments, all the visible and UV wavelengths are converted to a narrow range of the spectrum. The color appears incredibly brighter to the eye. These paints find use in road markings and dividers, obstacles on roads, delineated markings in parking garages, apartments and commercial spaces.
Innovation for reliability:
The epoxy flooring market is a melange of various raw materials from numerous suppliers. We have recognized that coloring such varying systems can be problematic. The end result is an unpredictable outcome – nonuniform coloration, leveling issues, delayed curing and stoichiometry challenges. We have put together a package that works every time – epoxy resin, EzFloMix pigments and fillers.
Innovation for simplicity:
It is typical in modern construction, including high-rise buildings, to cement plaster the brick wall structure and then paint it with a primer followed with multiple coats of emulsion paints. This takes time, labor and money. We wanted a simpler and faster process to finish it. This was a tricky problem to solve, but we have one that works! The system consists of traditional plaster materials such as sand, cement and water, with the addition of a water based color dispersion. Best of all, not only is the plaster through and through internally colored, but it simultaneously renders the plaster hydrophobic. Plaster cracks and porosity is history. The same system can also be used to internally color pre-cast concrete. In addition, for those who want a western texture, we have a single system colored stucco product, which is quick and easy to apply using rollers and trowels. These innovations are certainly a solution for the present times.
