Pigments – titanium dioxide starting from November 2005 new in the program. The UV protection characteristics of TiO2 support the existing business with light-stabilisers Our partner SENSIENT manufactures nano-particles by the Sol/Gel technology. Sol/Gel technology is a common procedure for the production of nano-particle on basis of SiO2, TiO2, Al2O3. A multitude of functional groups can be introduced into the layer by application of the of modified silanes. In this way their properties can be guided into a wide range of possible technological applications. The characteristics could lead from non-adhesive, hydrophilic hydrophobic, antimicrobically over to scratch-proof up to the self-lubrication.
The Bodo Möller Chemie will take over the range of the small customer service as well as the entire storekeeping for them. Particularly the range of UV titan, which is assigned to the specialities, made possible to use by the existing experience in the light protection sector synergies and offer new combined technical solutions in the light protection area. UV titan increases the protection from ultraviolet (UV -) light and could be used for special effects in combination with Perl gloss pigments.
