Spinel Black

Spinel Black belongs to the copper-manganese-iron-system of spinels. This pigment is characterized by an unusually deep black appearance.

While other pigments remit at least some part of the light spectrum and appear more or less colored, spinel black remits no more than 1.5% of incoming light at any point of the spectrum. No other pigment achieves this kind of optical blackness. Its good hiding power also gives this pigment a high yield.

Since spinel black is practically insoluble, handling requires the usual precautions against dust inhalation and working hygiene.

Spinel Black is a chrome-free black with an excellent hiding power. It fits for Pantone Process Black C. It will be predominantly used in technical applications. The pigment has good chemical resistance, outdoor durability, light fastness, heat stability, is non-bleeding and non-migratory. It is a pigment suggested for engineering resins. Furthermore, it is particularly suitable for paints and coatings including general industry, coil and extrusion coatings. This pigment causes no warpage in injection-moulded or extruded parts. Its good fastness ratings makes the pigment expedient for plastics resistant to both weathering and heat, its outstanding color strength makes it especially suitable for shading. Another field of application are architectural finishes, both water- and solvent-based.
