Versacol DC (ex DC Colours) are environmentally friendly pigment pastes made with highly biodegradable surface-active agents. Free from nonylphenol ethoxylates, glycol ethers and VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds).
Versacol DC are universal: compatible with all types of decorative paints.
Versacol DC pigment pastes consist of very efficient pigment selection in order to easily reproduce the popular colours in the decorative paint market. The fully automatised and strictly controlled production process allow us to standardise the density of the pastes as well therefore they can be dosed by weigth and volume as well.

Versacol DC are new generation tinting pastes!

  • VOC- and APEO-free universal tinting pastes - do not require any labelling
  • Environmentally friendly pigment pastes made with highly biodegradable surface-active agents
  • High pigment concentration with excellent flow properties and pumpability.
  • Free from glycolethers but permium drying properties.
  • A very efficient pigment selection makes easily to reproduce the popular colours in the decorative paint market.
  • A specific pigment selection made for woodstains and facade paints.
  • Dosing possible by weight and volume as well.

Paint systems for which Versacol DC can be used

  • Emulsion paints
  • Plasters
  • Silicate- and limewash paints and plasters
  • Alkyd paints
  • Nitrocellulosic paints (except for Versacol DC Y74S and Versacol TM E2R)
  • Woodstains (with special selection)

Very clear product codes to make your pigment selection easier

Y55A Colour name: Y: Yellow
Y55A Colour index: PY155
Y55A Application area

Application areas:

A : For all types of shades and applications; very good price/quality ratio; excellent fastness and good covering power.
P : For pastel shades in order not to increase the costs for saturated shades: excellent fastness but medium covering power.
S : For saturated shades to reduce the cost; medium fastness for pastel shades.
 I : For interior use only.
F : For mineral resins subject to chalking effect; mineral complex pigments.
T : For woodstains; transzparent iron oxide pigments

The weathering fastness tests have been carried out in a film forming resin system (PVC:40%). Assessment after 12 months open-air weathering (Mediterranean climate) compared with the 5-level ISO 'GreyScale for Assessing Change in Colour', for semi-mass tone and a 1/25 standard depth.
The light fastness tests have been carried out exposing sample for 1000 h with Atlas Weather-O-Meter 600 WRC in a film forming resin system (PVC:40%). Assessment after the test made with comparision of the 8-level ISO 'BlueScale for Assessing Change in Colour' (DIN 54003), for the semi-mass tone and a 1/25 standard depth.

Criteria for pigent paste selection:

  • Weathering and Light fastness properties (depending on the saturation of the shade)
  • Type of paint system to be tinted
  • Range of colour shades
  • Quality requirement of the market
In order to choose the optimum tinting paste configuration please contact our colorist.
Silicate- and limewash paints and plasters have extreme high pH therefore for such systems we recommend to use only our Versacol DC oxide pigment based selection (FACADE). Due to a high porosity of silicon modified systems we recommend the same for these ones as the porosity of these systems significantly decreasing the durability of the pigments used.
