Ultrazur™ is the new Ultramarine Blue by Heubach.
It has been developed to offer a greater choice to the industry.
Ultrazur™ is optimal for a wide range of applications that require a medium to high-performing Ultramarine Blue pigment such as Plastics, Powder Coatings, Industrial Coatings, Cosmetics ….
It is highly resistant to heat (up to 350°C), light (lightfastness of 8 in HDPE) and weather, ideal for outdoor applications.
It is non-warping and non-shrinking, thus maintaining the dimensional stability of polyolefins. The new technology used in the final production step of Ultrazur™ provides excellent dispersibility making it a perfect choice for fibres and thin film applications.
Ultrazur™ is a safe product in processing and final use.
It is non-toxic, does not migrate and complies with industry norms for use in sensitive applications (registrations are expected for Q2 2023), such as consumer goods, toys, packaging and many more!

About Ultramarine Blue
Ultramarine blue, derived from Latin Ultramarinus, translates to ‘Beyond the Sea’ because it was imported from overseas by Italian traders in the 14th and 15th centuries. Embodied in its name, Ultramarine Blue is a superlative blue, derived from the Lapis Lazuli stone. Back then, this brilliant blue came at prohibitive costs, unaffordable, yet highly demanded by great artists like Michelangelo, Rafael, and Vermeer. Its extensive history and demand has only grown over the years and it manages to transcend time, leaving its mark.
