Chemical manufacturer Huntsman will be sharing information at the UK Concrete Show on the company’s pigments and pigment systems that UK concrete manufacturers can use to inject colour into their concrete product portfolio.
Huntsman have been active in the global concrete industry for decades, and supply the sector with dry and liquid pigments that can be used to create decorative concrete products of different hues. Huntsman will showcase a variety of concrete pigment products at the show, including:
- IRON OXIDE and FERROXIDE™ iron oxide pigments, which have a high tint strength and can deliver clean consistent colours.
- GRANUFIN™ pigment granules; a range of free flowing, easy to handle and virtually dust-free pigments that contain a special binding ingredient, which helps them stay intact during transportation and metering, contributing to a cleaner manufacturing environment.
- Liquid HYRDOTINT™ pigment slurries; based on high-quality synthetic iron oxide, chrome oxide, titanium dioxide and carbon pigment, these aqueous dispersions are formulated especially for the creation of coloured concrete.
Todd Cottrell, Construction Business Director at Huntsman, said: “Concrete is the world’s most widely used man-made building material and nobody knows more about coloring it than Huntsman. With a broad portfolio of colour shades in a variety of forms, and our own dispensing systems, we can offer concrete manufacturers end-to-end advice to help themcolor concrete more effectively and efficiently. Whether the aim is to create coloured concrete for aesthetically pleasing buildings or for practical reasons, such as reflecting away the sun’s heat, we can support producers in the UK with their decision making and throughout the concrete colouring process.”
