New Product Announcement: Black Pigment


Pigment company Shepherd Color recently announced the launch of its new black pigment with jet masstone color and high tint strength. Copper Manganese Chromite Black 10G982, or Black 10G982, is a jet-black powder produced by high temperature calcination.

The black pigment was reportedly created for use for high durability and heat coatings such as coil and extrusion, automotive, industrial, architectural, powder and other coatings. It can also be used in glass enamels.

According to the release, the black pigment chemistry is known for standard use in high-durability coatings systems that meet the longest warranties and highest color retention requirements when used in building products. Additionally, it can be used in high-heat applications such as pipe, infrastructure and structural steel.

Shepherd Color notes that additional characteristics of the pigment include:

  • Resistant to acids, bases, solvent and UV;
  • High temperature stability;
  • Non-warping in polyolefin; and
  • Non-bleeding or migrating.

“The advantage of Black 10G982 is that it has a very dark masstone for the tint strength it attains. Those tint colors are also incredibly stable,” writes the company.

“When shear is applied to a liquid coating, it can cause other black pigments to change their dispersion state and the color of the tint. Black 10G982, due to its dispersion and particle size properties, resists this change and the color remains the same.”

Technical data information for the black pigment can be found here.
