Colortherm® Yellow 3950 is a heat stable iron oxide yellow pigment. As a zinc-modified iron oxide, calcined at high temperatures, it exhibits remarkable heat stability in most systems. Maximum temperature stability can vary depending on the system into which the pigment is incorporated. The pigment belongs to the product range of High Performance Special Pigments and fulfills the higher requirements necessary in the paint and coating industry. It can be used in architectural paints, powder coatings and coil coatings. In addition, the product is used for the coloring of construction materials and in the field of Wood Plastic Composites. The product exhibits good dispersibility, even in processes which have short dwell times and relatively low shear forces. It is easy to break down and distribute to reach its final tinting strength quickly. It does not migrate and is very lightfast and weather stable. The pigment belongs to the Colortherm® product range that has been developed particularly for applications where high heat stability is required.
