New Product Announcement: Green Pigment


Pigment company Shepherd Color recently announced the launch of a new addition to its specialty performance lineup.

The pigment, Chromium Oxide Green 30C659, is part of Shepherd’s specialty performance Dynamix easily dispersed and Arctic IR Reflective pigment lines.

Chromium Oxide Green, also known as C.I. Pigment Green 17, is widely used in high-performance color matches and has wide regulatory approvals and inclusion in chemical registries around the world, according to Shepher.

Green 30C659 is an addition to the Arctic IR Reflective line of pigments, which is commonly used for cool coatings because of the potential to reduce energy usage in building products. The pigment incorporates the Dynamix technology, which removes the pigment grinding step in laboratory development, scale-up and full production.

According to the company, Green 30C659 is all inorganic and doesn’t have any organic dispersion aids or resins included that might compromise the performance of systems incorporating the pigment.

Common uses for Green 30C659 are high-performance coatings such as coil coating, extrusion spray, automotive, industrial, architectural, powder and other coatings. According to Shepherd, the pigment has the following characteristics:

  • Dark green color;
  • High Total Solar Reflectance;
  • High opacity and heat stability; and
  • Compatibility with a wide range of water and solvent systems and plastics.
