Huntsman Corp. Rolls Out Pigments
Titanium dioxide maker Huntsman Corp. has launched a new line of light-reflecting pigments. Huntsman says the new pigments, dubbed Altiris, can be used in any color of paint formula, even black. This can increase solar reflection by more than 100%, reducing cooling requirements in cars and buildings. Additionally, the company says the pigments can be used to reduce warping in plastics applications, such as vinyl siding.
