Clariant Doubles Water-Based
Pigment Prep Production
•MEXICO: Clariant inaugurated its new
production plant for water-based pig-
ment preparations in Mexico. The new
plant, located in Santa Clara, doubles
Clariant’s Mexico annual production ca-
pacity for water-based pigment prepa-
rations and enhances its ability to serve
customers across North and Latin America.
The capacity increase will enable
Clariant to improve its support for the regions’ current and emerging market segments including specialties like home care
and personal care among other categories.
Pigment preparations are aqueous dispersions based on pigments. Compared
to powder pigments, pigment preparations offer faster and more cost-efficient
production, and better dispersion, according to the company. In addition,
they provide more flexibility through
the possibility of tailor-made solutions.
Clariant began production at the new
Santa Clara plant for water-based pigment
preparations in Q2 2016. To complement
this capacity increase, Clariant is also
scheduled to start-up a new plant for sol-vent-based pigment preparations at the
same site in Q4 2016. This will produce
high milling demand products for the US
specialties market. •
