Sachtleben's latest generation of rutile pigments for the plastics and plastics-processing industry. White pigments from Sachtleben enjoy an outstanding reputation around the globe, in practically all conceivable applications, whether man-made fibers, paper, or paints and coatings.

Only in the case of high-quality coloured and grey polymers have the rutile titanium dioxide pigments from Duisburg - up to today - appeared less suitable, as a result of their characteristic yellowish hue.

Now, however, Sachtleben has achieved the breakthrough in developing, in the form of its organically and inorganically surface coated and micronized "HOMBITAN VP RXX-K" innovation, a rutile pigment with a pronounced bluish hue in these coloured applications. With its blue nuance, this new product assures fresher and cleaner hues in coloured masterbatches, PVC floor coverings and other coloured and grey polymers. In addition, the pigment is also notable for its excellent dispersibility and ease of incorporation into the plastic.

HOMBITAN VP RXX-K has been available since May, and is currently undergoing its market-launch phase. Several hundred tonnes of this newcomer have already been produced and are available immediately for plastics producers anywhere in the world. By introducing HOMBITAN VP RXX-K, Sachtleben is directly targeting precisely the plastics market sector which, due to the yellowish hue of conventional rutile pigments, previously remained closed to this renowned Duisburg company.

At present, the new product is still known by its slightly complicated project name, and the official trade name will be announced in the near future.
