A blackish powder produced by high temperature calcination. This pigment has high infrared reflection, good UV and visible opacity, is chemically inert, heat resistant, and stable to ultraviolet light. It is non-bleeding and non-migratory. It exhibits low heat build-up and has exceptional durability. It is generally used in applications where a dark color with low heat build-up is desired, and where resistance to heat, light, and weather are needed. It is compatible with most resin systems and polymers.
