Eckart’s new High Chemical Performance (HCP) metallic pastes are extremely resistant to chemicals and acids due to their alkalis acrylate polymer coating, it says. The composition of aluminium-platinum dollars gives the new series maximum brilliance and hiding power, Eckart adds.

STAPA HCP 4125 is the first pigment of the newly developed STAPA HCP 4000 range. The bright silver look is suited to the interior of vehicles, Eckart says.

The second newcomer, STAPA HCP 4225, is somewhat darker and coarser and tailored to the needs of coil coating. More products are in development.

Eckart recommends all STAPA HCP 4000 pigments for high-quality solvent-based single-layer coatings in the fields of consumer electronics, automotive accessories and coil applications.
