During the upcoming Pigment and Color Science Forum and the PNWSCT Northwest Coatings Fest, two Sun Chemical experts will discuss some of the latest trends in pigments.

Jonathan Doll, Ph.D., R&D Leader of Effect Pigments at Sun Chemical, will give a presentation entitled “Soft Focus, Optical Blur, and the Pigments that Cause Them” on Thursday, October 4th at 2 p.m. during the Pigment and Color Science Forum held in Boston, Mass. on October 3-5, 2018.

Doll will talk about how the soft focus effect that has traditionally been achieved in photography has been identified as a desirable effect in cosmetic and personal care applications to obscure blemishes and wrinkles while maintaining a natural look. During his presentation, Doll will discuss methods to measure soft focus and will introduce a new soft-focus pigment system for use in applications, ranging from cosmetics to coatings and plastics.

Sun Chemical’s Dr. Nilanjan Chakrabarti, Technical Manager, Coatings Applications at Sun Chemical, will give a presentation entitled “Future of Paints: Innovations in High Performance Pigments and Manufacturing” on October 11 at 8:50 a.m. at the PNWSCT 2018 Northwest Coatings Fest in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada from October 10-12, 2018.

In his presentation, Chakrabarti will focus on some of Sun Chemical’s newest high performance pigments, including:

  • Sunbrite Yellow 74, Sun Chemical’s newest Azo yellow for architectural coatings developed specifically for decorative coatings producers and the needs of machine colorants;
  • Palomar Blue 15, specifically developed for the automotive coatings market and designed to have a highly desirable neutral flop color in metallic coatings; and
  • Quindo® Red 122, a pigment that is suitable for water and solventborne systems and has excellent styling for opacity and durability for deco coatings.
