Pigment Qualification Lab
Technical Support Lab
Taking another stride towards developing India as an international competence center, legacy BASF Coatings (India) Private Limited has set up a new coatings technical support lab at Mangalore, India. This new facility at Mangalore will support lab activities including product development, analytical testing, certification and new pigment qualification, catering to the coatings customers of BASF outside of India.
As part of the pigment qualification process, technicians examine test specimens to analyze the coloristic and performance properties of the pigment dispersions. Once qualified, the test pigments are used in various formulations for automotive coatings.
