Launch of new Granufin pigments

Venator, the pigments and additives expert, has developed several brand new color pigment products for the concrete industry. The new products were launched at BetonTage Concrete Solutions 2018 – Europe’s largest precast concrete congress.

Granufin Azur is the first cobalt blue pigment in Venator’s Granufin range of virtually dust-free, color pigments. Based on a traditional cobalt blue pigment, Granufin Azur can be used with Venator’s automatic Granumat dosing system to meet growing demand for blue colored concrete.

With demand for black concrete products also on the rise, Venator has developed several new black Granufin pigments. The new pigments include a bluish black carbon grade and a brand new hybrid pigment that combines elements of Venator’s iron oxide and carbon black pigment know-how.


Excellent color quality

Venator’s new products are the latest additions to a rich mix of granulated, liquid and powder-based color pigments that can give concrete excellent color quality. Venator’s product lines include its complementary Granufin microgranule pigments and Granumat automated dosing equipment, which together can make colored concrete quicker, cleaner and more cost effective to produce.

Adolf Veit, Commercial Director Construction, at Venator, said: “BetonTage is the perfect place for us to launch our brand new blue and black Granufin pigment products. It’s an excellent forum for talking to construction companies about the options that exist for creating colored concrete. Helpfully, the show is also relatively close to our Walluf production plant – where our Granufin and Granumat products were invented and where most of our European color pigment experts for the concrete industry are based.”

Venator’s production plant at Walluf has been producing color pigments for the concrete industry for more than 100 years. If you want to talk about the creation of colored concrete, contact the experts:
