SACHTLEBEN- New functionalized pigments from the Sachtoperse family of barium sulphate pigments are optimally tailored to their respective binder and designed to provide secure bonding between pigment and resin. EP epoxy functionalized pigments can be incorporated into polyester-resin-based coating systems, epoxy-modified alkyd stoving enamels or amino-resin-based stoving enamels. AM amino functionalized pigments are optimized for use with two-pack PUR coatings or alkyd-, acrylate- and polyester-resin-based coating systems.
