Colorant Solutions for Construction Materials

The construction industry uses products which demand high performance in many areas–they must be durable, corrosion resistant, heat stable, weather resistant, lightfast, safe, environmentally friendly, and cost effective. Organic Dyes and Pigments’ team of chemists strive to develop dye and pigment colorant solutions to meet these needs, to provide unique product identification, and to make them aesthetically pleasing. Our  Organic and Inorganic pigments, available in easily-dispersible powders, presscake, and aqueous dispersion forms, can meet almost any physical demand required by a durable topical coating and can be used in many applications such as wood stains & identification, industrial coatings, recycled products, foam & fiberglass insulation, adhesives, and polishing compounds. For applications where high lightfastness is required for warranted outdoor products, formulations will include our inorganic Orco™ iron oxide, titanium dioxide, chromium oxide, and cobalt pigments. These are applicable to ceramic tiles, concrete, cement & mortar, stucco & plaster, paper & fiberglass composites & laminates, mildew & fire resistant gypsum wallboards, rubber mulch, coil coatings, and cool roofing products.   Whatever colorant solution you need to meet the unique required physical properties of your end product, contact us so we can develop the perfect one for you.

stock-photo-7089383-power-sanderAbrasives, Adhesives, Sealants, & Tape are used extensively in the construction industry.  Example materials include resin-bonded colored sanding discs, pads, belts, sponges, rolls, & sheets, adhesives for wood, stone, & tile, flexible silicone sealants & caulking, and various tapes for industrial, insulation, & HVAC duct applications. Our dyes and pigments offer the lightfastness and heat-stability properties required to meet the high demands of the environments these materials are used in.  View the list of our standard dyes & pigments for these applications.
