Aluminum & Metals are typical materials used in construction projects. Our OrcoAluminum™ dyes for anodized aluminum provide a colorful and lightfast solution to many architectural building components. The Orco CPX™ IR-Series inorganic pigments can be formulated into Infrared Reflective(IR) coil coatings to provide an energy-saving solution for metal roofs and siding panels. These colorants offer the heat-stability and weather-resistant physical properties required in extreme environments.

Actual pigment and dye samples must be evaluated in a laboratory on medium to be colored in production for accurate shade and physical property results. Shades shown on print material and computer monitors are for general reference only as they are inherently inaccurate due to calibration variations and technical limitations of monitors and printers.
