AQ Colourants

Waterborne colourants AQ800

AQ colourants

These low-VOC waterborne colourants have been designed for waterborne lacquers and wall paints. They are very suitable for tinting plasters and structure paints as well. Suitable for both ‘in-plant’ as ‘Point of Sales’ use. Via the following modules the system can be tuned for specific needs:

Standard module:

These 12 colourants are selected on the basis of the widest possible colour range while minimizing the total amount of colourants. In this way there are enough options open for fine-tuning the total selection, even in the smallest machines with 16 canisters.

UV Plus module:

For an enhanced outdoor durability in the bright yellow, orange and red colour area, these high-quality organic colourants can be added for Exterior paints.

Façade module:

Inorganic pigments are known for their excellent outdoor durability and the stable performance in alkaline environments. For many Façade- and Silicate paints, only inorganic pigments can be used. Bismuth yellow and Oxide orange colourants increase the inorganic colour range specifically for the brighter yellow and orange area.

Façade Plus module:

To expand the colours even further in the green and blue area with only inorganic pigments, Cobalt blue and Oxide green can be selected.

Transparent module:

For creating transparent colours in wood stains.
