DCC Orange ORS (PO.86)

DCC Orange ORS

Application Recommendations

DCC is honoured to present a brand new colour index for the coatings and plastics market, Pigment Orange 86. DCC® Orange ORS is the cleanest inorganic orange pigment in the market. It is recommended for use in solvent based paints for automotive, high-end industrial and architectural applications (see above for application recommendations). It has low oil absorption, which makes it ideal for applications that require high pigment loading. DCC® Orange ORS has excellent hiding power, weather fastness, solvent resistance and is a good starting base for orange colour matches. This includes RAL shade matches, especially those that are difficult to formulate, such as RAL 2008 (see table 1).

Table 1

DCC® Orange ORS is a non-warping grade suitable for use in polyolefin based plastic applications that can be processed up to 250°C. With a total solar reflectance (TSR) of 58.8%, DCC® Orange ORS is also well suited to be incorporated into cool coating applications.
