BTC’s pigment preparations Luconyl®NG and Xfast® are completely dispersed pigments in a liquid or solid form for the direct use in your tintometric system (POS point-of-sales). Xfast® is the first solid colourant allowing to be used in a solid dispenser specifically design for this purpose, offering a step change in the world of POS by having all the advantages of manipulating a dry product.
