Shortening the development cycle gives you the economic advantage: Choosing the right colors for a given application without doubts or error will do just that.

Heat Management

Cool Pigments for Paints and Coatings
Heat build-up is caused by surface absorption of IR radiation. With BASF IR transparent and IR reflective pigments, the heating of particularly dark surfaces can be greatly mitigated and significant energy savings realized.


Cool Pigments for Plastics
Reduced heat build-up and increased IR reflection are the keys to keeping your environment cool and energy consumption low
