Seminar

IS CHEAPER ALWAYS BETTER? Cost-in-use RAL shade matching for an industrial application

Time: 14:20 - 14:40

Date: 25 October 2022

Theatre: Arena 4

Synopsis

IS CHEAPER ALWAYS BETTER?

 

In this lecture the pigmentation possibilities of the RAL colours 1023 Traffic Yellow, 2004 Traffic Orange, 3020 Traffic Red will be shown, also using a classic lead pigmentation as a reference. For industrial applications, different pigments and pigmentations will be compared in terms of material costs, opacity and long-term outdoor durability to show the long-term costs of colour maintenance.

This study is ultimately intended to raise awareness among paint manufacturers that the supposedly cheap pigments on a per kilo basis may prove to be less cost-efficient than the expensive pigments in the long run.
