Shepherd Color announces the Copper Manganese Chromite Black 10G982. This new pigment has a jet masstone color and high tint strength. Anticipated uses for Black 10G982 are high durability and heat coatings, such as coil and extrusion, automotive, industrial, architectural, powder, and other coatings. It can also be used in glass enamels. Additional characteristics of this pigment include:
- Resistant to acids, bases, solvent, and UV
- High-temperature stability
- Non-warping in polyolefin
- Non-bleeding or migrating
The advantage of Black 10G982 is that it has a very dark masstone for the tint strength it attains. Those tint colors are also incredibly stable. When shear is applied to a liquid coating, it can cause other black pigments to change their dispersion state and the color of the tint. Black 10G982, due to its dispersion and particle size properties, resists this change and the color remains the same. Once in a cured system, the Black 10G982 is inherently resistant to UV damage and the degradation by free radicals.
