Shepherd Color has developed a new pigment chemistry that features excellent durability, high opacity and a bright clean yellow color. Niobium Tin Pyrochlore (NTP) Yellow 10C151 is an innovative inorganic pigment that expands the envelope of durable color. It is a bridge between the high-chromaticity of organic pigments with the durability and opacity of inorganic pigments. The NTP Yellow is a new class of Complex Inorganic Colored Pigment under the designation Pigment Yellow 227 and is covered by a number of patents around the world.

To complement the NTP Yellow, the company is also introducing an improvement of a current product line with a new offering in its Rutile Tin Zinc (RTZ) Orange pigment line. RTZ Orange 10C341 offers increased redness, higher heat stability and excellent weathering when compared to current market offerings.

The NTP Yellow and RTZ Orange expand the options available to color stylists, architects and designers for high-value systems where the highest performance is required. They also make excellent replacements for colors based on the lead chromate pigment color space and provide paint chemists and formulators with high-performance, environmentally friendly alternative colorants.
