BASF introduces new Paliotol™ yellow pigment

MOUNT OLIVE, N.J., November 30, 2000 - BASF today introduced a new yellow in its Paliotol!" pigment line: Paliotol Yellow K 1700, which is a modified PY 183. This grade is cleaner, stronger and greener than the standard PY 183. Complementing the BASF line of organic yellow pigments, Paliotol Yellow K 1700 pigment also maintains all of the same physical properties as Paliotol Yellow K 2270 and may be used in the same plastics applications. It is greener than the Paliotol Yellow K 2270 and K 184, but redder than the Paliotol Yellow K 0961 and PY 191.

Paliotol Yellow K 1700 is an excellent addition to BASF's offerings of yellow pigments with excellent transparency. This new product gives a yellow that falls between the red and green shades, giving color matchers more options.

Paliotol Yellow K 1700 is believed to be suitable for low- and high-density polyethylene (LDPE, HDPE), polypropylene (PP), polyvinylchloride (PVC), polystyrene (PS), acrylonitrile/butadiene/ styrene (ABS) and polycarbonate. In masstone, Paliotol Yellow K 1700 is much greener and transparent than conventional PY 183 pigments.
