For a natural and durable orange – Pacific Orange EH 3963 (L 2828)

When the day ends, the setting sun often colours the sky in an incomparable orange tone. And golden October also enchants us with the gentle orange of autumn leaves and ripe pumpkins. These are the natural shades that the coating industry now has available to upgrade surfaces and give them a refreshing visual appeal and quality.

The new chromatic hybrid orange pigment EH 3963 (L 2828) combines numerous benefits: it expands the design options for powder coatings while fulfilling the very highest demands. When compared to other organic orange pigments, it impresses with its outstanding weather, temperature and chemical resistance, and is also characterised by its good covering properties.

No more fading

“When creating our new orange pigment, it was important to us to overcome the problem of pastel shades in the façade colours fading, among other issues,” reports Albert Ensenyat, Business Manager for Pigments at BTC. “This is where Pacific Orange EH 3963 (L 2828) delivers excellent results.” In addition, the pigment can be combined with other DPP pigments without having to worry about the otherwise common brown discolouration.
