Feb '09
Ciba invites visitors to the European Coatings Show (ECS) in Nuremberg from March 31–April 2, 2009 to join in “Making Things Better”.

At Ciba, we are continuously creating, re-inventing & improving products to allow our customers also to make things better. At Stand 557 in Hall 7, special emphasis will be placed on design and efficiency, colors and effects, and sustainability. The Ciba stand will feature sections devoted to paints & coatings, inks & printing, and adhesives & sealants, as well as a design solutions corner.

Better design and efficiency
In the paints & coatings sector, Ciba is launching Ciba XYMARA CarboProtect, a unique new light stabilizer that significantly increases protection of carbon-fiber-reinforced materials, enhancing long-term stability and enabling greater versatility in application and design.

Another innovation for paints & coatings applications, new Ciba IRGAFLOW slip and leveling agents combine high performance with high efficiency.

Opaque brushed metal effects produced without the use of metal will be featured in the inks and printing sector. Ciba will also be introducing its new high-performance Ciba EFKA dispersants especially designed for ink-jet printing. A further highlight will be Ciba XYMARA Quicksilver inks for gravure and screen printing, with their highly reflective mirror effects, outstanding adhesion and overall excellent performance.

Ciba will be showing a preview of its new edition of Color Trend Vision, a design and technology package developed to provide designers, converters, and paint, ink and masterbatch producers with global and regional color trend information, including new color areas attainable using new products from Ciba.

More information on Color Trend Vision is available at www.XYMARA.com, which offers designers, marketing experts and colorists support in developing unique visual effects for a wide variety of applications.

With its strengthened focus on adhesives and sealants, Ciba will be presenting its new Ciba Photolatent Base (PLB) Cure Technology designed to improve production efficiency and product performance in reactive adhesive and sealant systems.

Better colors and effects
A new pigment for paints and coatings, Ciba IRGAZIN Solid Red combines excellent hiding power – especially in the critical saturated, yellowish red area – with high durability and color strength. For inks and printing applications, Ciba will be showing new stylings produced with the Ciba XYMARA Nordic range of effects. Wherever adhesives and sealants are used, Ciba can help improve the look, performance and durability of the end product and, with its dedicated team, now offers customers one entry point for all of its broad offerings.

Better sustainability
In the paints and coatings sector, Ciba is introducing three new EFKA defoamers that widen application options in the fast-growing water-based area. The latest additions to the Ciba UNISPERSE Ultra range of water-based pigment dispersions will also be highlighted.

New in the inks and printing sector, Ciba MICROLITH Jet high-performance pigment preparations offer increased formulation flexibility in ink-jet applications and are highly compatible with UV-curing systems.
