- Excellent product properties and different shades and grades that meet the requirements for widespread applications

Vienna/Austria; Dahej/India, January 24, 2023 - The Heubach Group, a global leader in inorganic and organic pigments and comprehensive color solutions launches its new product line Ultrazur™ at PlastIndia 2023: A range of Ultramarine Blue pigments in four shades from greenish to reddish for a variety of standard and demanding applications.
Ultrazur has been tested extensively against market benchmarks and displays excellent product properties that make it an optimal choice for a range of different applications that require a medium to high performing Ultramarine Blue pigment. It is highly resistant to heat (up to 350°C), light (lightfastness of 8 in HDPE) and exhibits strong weatherability. It is non-warping and non-shrinking, thus maintaining the dimensional stability of polyolefins. The new technology used in the final production step of Ultrazur provides excellent dispersibility making it a perfect choice for fibres and thin film applications. Ultrazur is a safe product in processing and final use. It is non-toxic, does not migrate and complies with industry norms for use in sensitive applications (registrations are expected for Q2 2023).
Ultrazur is manufactured in Heubach´s site in Dahej, India, in a brand-new production facility with state-of-the-art technology and highly automated processes. This ensures highly consistent quality and excellent environmental performance: “Ultrazur is the “greenest” Ultramarine Blue in the market. Our modern manufacturing site in Dahej boasts of best-in-class wastewater and air emissions treatment technology. Further reduction on CO2 emissions in manufacturing will come throughout 2023 based on our investments in solar energy,” highlights Ravichandran Palanivelu, Head of Business Development Ultramarine Blue at Heubach.
With Ultrazur, Heubach adds a powerful new pigment to its broad and innovative range of sustainable colorant solutions for plastic applications. For more information, please visit us at our booth at PlastIndia 2023, or at http://www.heubach.com.
