Heucotech has also been represented at the exhibition, offering advice and support on the field of pigments and pigmentpreparations for paints, coatings and allied industries.

In addition, Dr. Detlef Barion, Marketing, Businesss Development  and Productmanager at Heubach, presented his paper „Hiding and brilliant yellow - Smart combinations make their way“ at American Coatings Conference (ACC) on Monday, April 11. His presentation was about replacement possibilities of lead chromates and molybdate reds. The tools for a systematic approach to achieve the desired lead-free alternatives were illustrated by looking into key parameters such as chroma, hue and hiding power of individual pigments. Additionally, classical alternatives to the new ready-to-use multi-pigment preparations for a 1:1 replacement in full shade applications have been presented.
