Color is one of the most important ways for companies to brand their products and differentiate from the competition. In the agricultural industry, distinctive seed coloration helps to classify and distinguish between seed types and to avoid potentially dangerous misuse. The coloration of seeds treated with pesticides is even mandatory in most legislations. Thus, seed companies and seed coaters are increasingly looking for vibrant color options to optically differentiate their products.
We offer a dedicated range of powder pigments and pigment preparations (aqueous dispersions based on pigments) as well as selected dyes for seed coloration. Our colorants are available in the most relevant color indices and can be blended to create customized shades to suit your application. Combinations or pigments or pigment preparations can be used to generate a virtually indefinite number of possibilities. With the addition of white, black or pearlescent pigments, we can help you to fine-tune the appearance of the seed coating, offering additional branding opportunities.
Our global seed coating colorants are exempted from the requirement of a tolerance under U.S. EPA 40 CFR §180.920 and are cleared to be used on crops for food use. They are also compliant with the European REACH Regulation.
