Color Our Future Lead-Free
New Paliotan® VIU Lead-Free Pigments
Sun Chemical’s Leadership as a Provider of Pigments Free of Lead Chromate
Lead chromate has been identified as a substance that negatively impacts human health and is toxic to the environment with long-lasting effects. Many countries have banned the use of lead chromate, especially in architectural coatings and toys.
By supporting more sustainable alternatives in the paint and coatings industries and placing a focus on cost efficiency, we demonstrate how lead-free pigments improve formulation performance as well as value-in-use versus former lead-based coatings.
With high chroma, our new hybrid Pacific Orange expands the orange color space for lead-free powder coatings.
