Re-inventing the color orange

The color orange has a cheerful and refreshing, warm and dynamic effect. At the same time, this color tone sends a strong signal. When it comes to engineering plastics for use in demanding applications, however, useful orange pigments are few and far between. With its Sicopal® Orange K 2430, BASF is remedying this state of affairs. This new, extraordinarily stable inorganic mixed oxide is well-suited for areas of application in which many organic pigments fail, including those where high UV resistance and weathering resistance are required or where there is a need to withstand aggressive chemicals and high temperatures. But even aside from these high-end applications, this intensely colored, brilliant BASF pigment, with its very good covering capacity, can bridge existing gaps since this product expands the palette of warm, thermally stable orange shades into a new dimension.


Pigment selection can be difficult

Nowadays, anyone who would like to make a plastic product in an attractive color can choose from a broad spectrum of colorants. Especially organic pigments have proven to be exceptionally multi-faceted. BASF today is the industry leader in organic as well as inorganic pigments.
