Shepherd Highlights High-Performance Inorganic Pigments and Ink-Ready Dispersions
The Shepherd Color Company is showcasing a wide range of high-performance complex inorganic color pigments used in the coatings industry at Booth 2084. These pigments are an extraordinary class of traditional metal oxide materials that offer stable, long-lasting color for many applications. Also, they have unbeatable weatherability, heat and chemical resistance, are nonwarping and easy to disperse.
Building on Shepherd Color’s expertise in color, Shepherd Technologies (ST) has created a four-color set of color preparations for digital printing inks. Ink Ready Dispersions (IRDs) are inorganic pigment preparations. Delivered as dry color, they are over 90% pigment content. They can be used to create a wide range of digital inks and thin films using minimal dispersion work. The normally difficult-to-disperse inorganic pigments are formatted to achieve digital size with the same grinding used for organic pigmented inks.
