• Dispers pigment preparations ensure an even mass coloration of board materials;
• Design prototypes based on Firemist ® effect pigments boast manifold design options.

The color shades Royal, Curry, Berry and Terra are based on BASF pigment preparations from the Dispers range. They are distributed under the brand name INNOVUS® Coloured MDF as part of the global INNOVUS décor collection of Glunz.

The patent-registered Dispers pigment preparations have been developed by BASF specifically for use in wood-based panels such as MDF. These specially designed fiberboard materials consist of mass-colored wood fibers and offer virtually unlimited design options for various fields of application from top quality interior fittings and store design to trendy office furniture. Dispers pigment preparations ensure an even mass coloration of the material and stand out due to their great shine as well as their color and light stability.

As early as 1999 Glunz started working with BASF pigment preparations to produce mass-colored medium-density fiberboards. Previously, the portfolio of Glunz, the German subsidiary of the Portuguese Sonae Ind ú stria Group with its headquarters in Meppen, Lower Saxony, consisted of black (Dispers black 0077) and grey (Dispers grey 0056). Both shades will remain part of the future range, which now boasts four new colors: The product name Royal has been chosen for the deep ink blue of Dispers 6311, Curry for the strong yellow of Dispers 2355 while the dark chestnut-brown Dispers 2899 red is called Berry and the sophisticated Dispers 2866 brown has been christened Terra.

“Colors that perfectly reflect the trend“
“The new color collection opens up a completely new range of esthetic options for MDF,“ says Juliane Krüsemann, marketing manager for pigments at BASF. “The colors that we have developed in close cooperation with Glunz perfectly harmonize with and complement each other. They are part of a design concept that does not just, for a short while, reflect the current zeitgeist but that is part of a long-term trend.”

Experts from BASF have helped Glunz not only to develop the colors and start their production at the Meppen plant but have also advised them beforehand on the selection of colors for the extended INNOVUS collection.

BASF effect pigments give a refining touch to design prototypes
Furthermore, the sample designs on black mass-colored material that Glunz recently presented at a launch event in Hamburg show the immense variety offered by MDF. To produce one of these samples featuring an elegant "wave" relief, the company Hesse Lignal, a manufacturer of coatings and mordants from Hamm in North Rhine-Westphalia, developed a coatings system which has been realized with Firemist ® effect pigments from BASF. Depending on light exposure, the coated MDF surfaces shimmer with a hint of silver, gold or aquamarine.
