In the Coatings industry Ultramarine Blue has traditionally been used mostly to tint white paints in order to provide a blue undertone highly appreciated by paint makers. The benefits are clear: absorbance of yellow wavelengths, low tinting strength (good for tinting purposes), delivery of the desired undertone and excellent dispersibility.
With the launch of the Nubicoat range, Nubiola has added value to the performance of Ultramarine Blues in Coatings and has allowed paint makers to have a new opportunity to become different in the market place because:
Ultramarine Blue provides a unique blue color with a unique reddish undertone that no other pigment or blend of pigments available in the market can reach.
Ultramarine Blue has got a performance that very well meets the needs of 21st century paint makers, especially as regards the “green” approach to become more environmentally friendly.
Nubiola has developed unique manufacturing technologies that allow the new generation of Ultramarine Blues, the Nubicoat range, to overcome the former technical barriers that made the product not to be highly suitable for the blue coloration of Coatings.
In summary, with the launch of Nubicoat, Nubiola has converted Ultramarine Blues into High Performance Pigments for Coatings.
