Xfast® from BASF Colors & Effects is an innovative pigment preparation supplied in a novel granule form for solid-dosing of in-plant and point-of-sale coatings. Used in conjunction with the latest dispensing machinery XF200 from our partners at Hero , a customized formulation of colorant can now be dosed directly into the base paint for easy handling, accurate tinting and reduced costs.
- Switching to dry preparations allows for a state-of the-art EHS profile with low biocide content that supports label-free and eco-label requirements. Xfast® is APEO, MIT and CIT free and suitable for VOC free formulations.
- Xfast® colourants offer a very high pigment content, fully dispersed and supplied in a free-flowing, low-dusting format for ease of use. Solid dosing means no sedimentation, stable homogenization, reduced maintenance time and 100% uptake.
- The Hero XF200 machine uses a double screw mechanism and TintWise® software for maximum accuracy of gravimetric dosing that allows for full reproducibility of in-plant and in-can tinting formulations.
Hero XF200 has been designed for exclusive use with the BASF Xfast® pigment preparations to open up vast opportunities for intense colours in a wide range of decorative and architectural applications for interior and exterior. In these videos you can have a closer look at the functionality of the XF200 equipment and explore the POS concept.
