Baotou Hongbo Te Technology Co. Ltd. named Atlanta-based ColorChem International Corp. as the exclusive U.S. distributor of its GreenTopTM cerium-based pigments.

The Inner Mongolia, China-based colorant producer purchased the NeolorTM technology, equipment, and intellectual property to produce the pigments from Solvay S.A. late last year.

The company’s GreenTop Orange S (Pigment Orange 78) and Red S (Pigment Red 265) are currently being commercialized with others to follow.

The pigments are rare earth, cerium-based colorants, ColorChem says, and are similar in shade to Solvay-produced Neolor pigments. They can be used in a variety of resins like nylon, glass-filled nylon, polypropylene, polyethylene, polycarbonate, polysulfone, ABS, PC/PBT, and PU.

ColorChem is a colorant distributor.
