The Shepherd Color Company announces new Bismuth Vanadate Yellow

Shepherd Color has announced the opening of its new Virtual Showroom in March 2021 with the launch of its new Bismuth Vanadate (BV) Yellow, product code 30C133. Shepherd Color has more than 90 years of experience developing, optimising, and manufacturing an extraordinary range of complex inorganic colour pigments. This addition to its ultra-high performance yellow and orange lines, adds yet another pigment to its already long list of colour options.

Bismuth Vanadate, also known as C.I. Pigment Yellow 184, is widely used in high-performance yellow colour matches and has wide regulatory approvals and inclusion in chemical registries around the world. Shepherd Color’s Yellow 30C133 is only available in its Dynamix® brand, which removes the time consuming, energy-intensive and variable pigment grinding step in laboratory development, scale-up, and full production. Yellow 30C133 is all inorganic and doesn’t have any organic dispersion aids or resins included that might compromise the performance of systems incorporating Yellow 30C133.

Common uses for Yellow 30C133 are high-performance coatings, such as coil & extrusion spray, automotive, industrial, architectural, powder and other coatings. It can also be used in plastics and engineering polymers, especially in thin films and fibres. The pigment is optimised for easy dispersion and has the following characteristics:

  • Bright, green-shade yellow
  • High opacity and heat stability
  • Compatible with wide range of water and solvent systems and plastics
  • High tint strength

Yellow 30C133 is a great partner to Shepherd Color’s innovative NTP yellows helping customers to expand their inorganic durable and weatherable colour space options. This new pigment is an example of Shepherd Color’s R&D expertise in developing products that provide unique tools to solve the challenges of customers in the coatings and engineering plastics industries.
