Vynamon Organic Pigments for Plastics

Heubach offers a full range of organic pigments, manufactured at its sites in the USA and India, or produced specifically for it in Europe. These materials are sold under the trade names Heuco, Monastral, Monolite and Vynamon.

The plant at Ankleshwar in India came into production in October 1995 initially to produce phthalocyanine blues. Far from being a "third world" factory, this has been constructed to the most modern environmental standards : it has already been praised for an in-house 4MW power plant which operates to an overall efficiency of 80%, thanks to the recovery of waste heat. It also produces material which conforms to the tightest EU and US dioxin and PCB standards.

The Monastral / Monolite and Vynamon ranges of high-performance automotive pigments, phthalocyanines, azo pigments and speciality pigment dispersions were purchased by Heubach in 2003 from Avecia. The Heuco range are designed for use in inks, Vynamon in plastics and Monolite & Monastral in coatings:
