The yellow color space has a wide range of pigment options that have a balance of chromaticity, opacity and durability. The new NTP Yellow (PY227) brings bright chromatic color, high opacity, and excellent durability all at the same time. To complement the NTP Yellow, our improvements of the RTZ Orange (PY216) yield a true orange color unto itself, but also allows the addition of "a* value" or redness to color matches without compromising weathering or heat stability.

Color matches that used to depend on blends of organic and inorganic pigments can now be matched with all inorganic pigments for the ultimate in durability and a true expansion of the durable color envelope.

The NTP Yellow and RTZ Orange are compatible with a wide range of polymers in coatings and plastics for use in a wide range of applications:

  • Pre-painted coil and extrusion
  • Engineering polymers
  • Laminates and co-extrusions
  • Powder coatings
  • Architectural and façade coatings

Shepherd Color is also excited to announce a new addition to our NTP Yellow product portfolio, NTP Yellow 10G155. This new product brings the outstanding color, opacity, and durability that people have seen in NTP Yellow, but in a color shade closer to red-shade bismuth vanadate (PY184) pigments. Come see what this new pigment can do for you!
