Shepherd Color introduces PRECISE Black 40P925
Jan '09
The Shepherd Color Company introduces a new color into the PRECISE product line of extremely durable pigments designed specifically for coloring fibers and films. Black 40P925, CI Pigment Green 17, is black in color. The new pigment meets approval for Council of Europe AP(89)1, and Australian Standard AS 2070.

Black 40P925 is also part of the Arctic range and can be used to minimize heat build up and reduce overall energy costs. Shepherd's Arctic pigments reflect the infrared portion of the Sun's light. Because IR light contributes greatly towards heat build up, items made with Arctic pigments reduce the temperature of products that are exposed to the sun – without sacrificing color! This can extend product life, cool interior spaces or contents, retard degradation, or mimic the spectral properties of foliage for military camouflage.

Arctic Infrared Reflective Pigments mitigate solar-induced heat build-up and the destructive events associated with it. Cool products retain color, gloss, flexibility and mechanical properties. Cool products last longer! PRECISE Arctic pigments are an excellent choice for outdoor applications. Fiber uses include; awnings, tents, carpeting, and furniture textiles. Uses for outdoor opaque thin films include; profiles, windows, doors, siding, marine docks and agricultural films.

Formulating for cool surfaces requires an understanding of energy beyond the visible into the infrared. The Shepherd Color Company has been a leader in infrared technology for over 20 years. You can count on the technical expertise to help achieve cool durable color.

PRECISE pigments, like all of Shepherd Color's pigments, are 100% high performance inorganic pigments. Their characteristics include extreme durability, outstanding high temperature stability; they are chemically inert, insoluble and resistant to bleeding and migration, as well as being lightfast, and weathering well. Compared with standard pigments, they have exceptionally low extruder pressure build up. PRECISE pigments are engineered to have excellent dimensional control to enhance your productivity.

PRECISE pigments are also useful for coloring high temperature, engineered resins with use in fibers and thin films. Inorganic oxides, in particular, high performance inorganic pigments formed through high temperature (>800º C) solid state reactions, provide heat stable solutions.
