New solvent-based tinting pastes for Largo lower finishing costs and improve productivity
Sherwin-William’s colour lab in Märsta has developed XX1803, a new tinting paste system that replaces XX802 in the Largo dispensing system. Rollout of the new system is already underway and Syntema, a network of Sherwin-Williams distributors - have already made a successful transition to the new platform. Other Sherwin-Williams distributors will follow with a complete transition expected by 1 January.
In developing XX1803, the colour lab focussed on a variety of system improvements, including rheology and viscosity stability, wider colour range, colour matching accuracy, longer storage stability of mixed paints, as well as universal compatibility with all standard solventborne systems including General Industrial products such as Kem Niso, Polane D200 and PUDTM. Another major improvement is increased pigment strength that allows for smaller additions. This allows for smaller additions reducing the impact on properties such as viscosity and drying
