Nubicoat HTS - High Tinting Strength


Nubicoat HTS is produced with a new manufacturing technology that provides 40% more color strength (on average) and enhanced dispersibility/gloss/transparency compared to conventional Ultramarine Blues used in Paints&Coatings. Moreover, these allow customers either to make paints with higher hiding power at same color luminosity than in the past or to make paints with the same hiding power as in the past with a stronger blue color.

If we compare the % of Nubicoat HTS required to reach a specific Standard Depth of Shade vs the % of PB15:3, PB15:6 and blends of PB15:6+PV23 in a water-borne decorative paint, the result is that we need between 3 and 5.5 more times % of Nubicoat HTS than % of organic pigments. With a conventional Ultramarine Blue it would have been between 5 and 9 more times.

Nubicoat HTS is not an encapsulated with silica Ultramarine Blue; therefore it is not acid resistant. It is highly indicated for indoor applications and for outdoor applications that work with highly cross-linked and light resistant binders/systems where there is no acid additive and there is no risk of any potential acid component release when ageing.

In summary, Nubicoat HTS adds a higher tinting strength to the excellent performance of Ultramarine Blues i.e.:
Ease to disperse and to wet
Excellent solvent fastness
Good alkali fastness (without the presence of high % of Calcium ions)
Heat fastness (350ºC)
Excellent light fastness
High transparency, ideal situation when combining Ultramarine Blues with “Effect and Metallic pigments”
High compatibility with Titanium Dioxide, especially important when making “pastel” color coatings which have to be exposed outdoor
No metamerism
Environmentally-friendly profile
