FP-Pigments produces a range of products for all types of Architectural coatings which can be used for the partial replacement of TiO2. The level of replacement will depend upon the formulation type, typically 5–20% is possible.
Paints formulated for lower cost often have less than 3% TiO2 by weight, potentially allowing higher than 20% replacement ratios.
Solvent-Based Architectural Coatings
FP-Pigments produce a surface treated grade of FP-Opacity Pigment™ with improved pigment wetting properties for use in solvent-based coatings. In many solvent-based paints the TiO2 pigment can already be well dispersed, distributed and stabilised with little or no crowding and therefore the potential replacement levels achievable can be smaller than in water-based coatings. We recommend a reformulation ladder of 4%, 8% and 12% is used to help determine the optimum TiO2 replacement level.
PoS Tinting System – Colour matching with Opacity Pigment in Point of Sale tint bases
FP-Pigments can now offer substantial savings in Point of Sale tint bases through up to 20 % reduction in TiO2 without compromise to colour matching properties. Visibly matching colours with a DE <0.5 (typically <0.3) even in hard to match colours.
