    A broad range of coatings-grade iron, chromium and zinc-ferrite oxides. These high quality, synthetic oxides are inorganic colour pigments, suitable for a wide range of demanding colourant applications. Typical uses include architectural paints, industrial coatings, wood stains, plastics, rubber, ceramics, inks and paper.

    The CathayCoat “A” grades such as BA, GA, RA and YA are highly micronised to offer easy dispersion with high-speed impeller (Cowles type) milling equipment or single and twin screw extruders, while the economic ā€œSā€ and ā€œCā€ grades are suitable for high-energy media filled dispersion equipment such as sandmills and horizontal mills or applications where high Hegman levels of dispersion are not required.

    All grades are available in micronised and non-micronised forms, and are strictly quality controlled for colour and chemical properties, ensuring outstanding light fastness, opacity, chemical resistance, heat stability, exterior durability and compatibility.

    The full spectrum of classic and high performance organic pigments. This range includes azo yellows and phthalo blues through to DPP reds and quinacrodone violets. CathayColour organic pigments offer a full range of grades to satisfy your performance and colour requirements across a broad range of end applications.

    These organic and inorganic dispersions are APEO and binder free pigment preparations of pourable and pumpable consistency, suitable for use in tint dispensing equipment and with particularly outstanding results in applications such as water-thinnable emulsion paints and synthetic resin bound renderings. CathayNyl is a water based pigment dispersion preparation covering a range of different shades.

    For brilliant transparent or opaque colours in clear plastics including polystyrene (PS), styrene acrylonitrile (SAN), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), unplasticised polyvinyl chloride (PVC-R), polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), polyester (PET/PBT), polycarbonate (PC) and polyamide (PA), CathaySol polymer soluble dyes are an exceptional solution.

    Opaque formulations are produced by adding white pigments such as titanium dioxide or zinc sulphide, while in combination with organic and inorganic pigments, CathaySol can produce colours of higher tinctorial strength and greater vibrancy. In addition to this, these solvent dyes can be combined with fluorescent dyes for particularly brilliant shades. CathaySol is the right solution for all your clear plastic colouring needs.

    These water-based pigment dispersions are glycol and surfactant free, designed especially for water based flexographic inks. They are stabilised with a small amount of highly compatible alkali-soluble styrene acrylic resin.

    CathaySperse organic dispersions for flexographic printing inks are perfect for all your packaging and printing requirements.


    With the acquisition by Cathay of Hoover Color in July 2016, we now have a unique range of Umbers and Transparent Iron Oxide, as well as our new Environoxide range, from our world class division.
