Our primary goal is to develop, from scratch if necessary, the perfect color solution for our customers’ products–meeting all shade and physical property requirements in the most cost-effective manner possible. Starting with basic inorganic pigments in powder form, we can offer a powder, powder blend, or develop an aqueous or solvent-based dispersion to meet your needs.

Listed below is our basic color-index-named pigments. Within those pigment index classes, we offer a multitude of varieties offering different shades and physical properties to suit different applications. A number of types of pigments included are titanium dioxides, carbon blacks, chromium oxides, iron oxides, and chrome- & zinc-based products. These are applicable to the coatings, construction, inks, plastics, and agricultural industries amongst others.

Actual pigment 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.
