Custom Color Solutions for Construction
Ferro custom color solutions for construction are formulated to meet specific color requirements for the construction industry, providing a wide palette designed for consistent quality and performance.
Our blends of high speed-mixed inorganic and organic pigments are custom tailored to provide a wide range of high performing and durable colors with good mixability and are specifically designed for use in concrete and other construction applications. Color solutions are provided in custom packaging based on our customers' requirements, including water-soluble bags.
Typical construction applications for these pigments include plaster for pools, stucco for facades, grouts for joint tiles, self-leveling mortars, flooring, and terrazzo tiles.
All color solutions for paints and coatings are manufactured and mixed using state-of-the-art equipment and are subject to rigorous testing in our advanced laboratory.
VALUE ADDED SERVICES
Advanced Color Matching
Ferro technicians combine their talents with today's most advanced computer color analysis equipment to offer our customers precise color-matching services. Our spectrophotometry process minimizes metamerism, speeds up color matching, ensures consistent quality and helps identify the pigment combination that produces any given color for the lowest possible cost and right performance characteristics, including outdoor durability and NIR reflectance.
Ferro can match your color chip/drawdown or we can refer to complete files of OSHA, Munsel, RAL, Federal Standard 595 Series or Pantone® matching systems to achieve your reference number. All of our colors are matched to Ferro standards or your reference sample, ensuring precise color reproduction from order to order.
Providing Formulation Guides/Assistance with Startup Formula Creation
We assist customers in their product development efforts to ensure regulatory compliance (e.g., usage in food, cosmetics) and desired performance including anticorrosion, outdoor durability and NIR reflectance.
Local Laboratory Testing
Our laboratory facility teams support customers’ production and development activities, including accelerated corrosion testing, weatherability testing, heat build-up and total solar reflectance testing and migration testing.
We work closely with our customers to co-innovate and develop customized high-performing and economical coloring solutions based on application requirements and operational processing needs, including custom formulations for paints, coatings, cement, concrete, inks, ceramics, glass, leather, metal and plastics.
Ferro provides custom manufacturing services to add value to specific projects, particularly in cases which our production facilities and know-how allow our customers to reach cost-efficiency targets or attain higher performing final products.
For customers who need additional manufacturing capabilities, we provide a full range of manufacturing capacities, from pilot runs to full-scale production.
