BASF: New Pigment for Tile

May 29, 2003
Sicocer(R)F Red 2360 extends BASF's range of zirconium coral pigments to include a bluish pigment with color properties that set new standards. The new pigment fulfils the demands of the tile industry for strongly colored, heat-resistant, fine-grained pigments suitable for transparent glazes. The very pure shade and exceptional color strength open up new possibilities in color design. Intensive shades can be obtained in glazes and through the new rotary printing process. With its stability to temperatures of up to 1200C and its low conductivity, SicocerF Red 2360 is the ideal pigment for application in transparent glazes.
