Two recent advances in the yellow color space address the needs of high-performance coatings. The most impactful is the recently discovered and commercialized NTP Yellow, named after its inorganic composition of niobium and tin in a pyrochlore structure. This bright middle-yellow color-space pigment has excellent chromaticity and opacity along with unmatched durability. To complement NTP Yellow is RTZ (Rutile Tin Zinc) Orange. Laboratory innovation has driven the color from a red-shade yellow to a true orange color.
Shepherd Color’s newest addition to the NTP Yellow product portfolio, NTP Yellow 10G155, brings the outstanding color, opacity, and durability seen in NTP Yellow but closer in color to red-shade BV Yellow pigments, but with higher heat stability and excellent weathering properties.
