The pigment pastes are basically grouped into three systems: water-based, water-solvent based and solvent-free solvent based. The applications cover industries such as Fiberglass Reinforced Plastics(FRP), water-based and solvent-based paints, button, decorative plywood, synthetic Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) and Polyurethane (PU) leathers, rigid and flexible Polyurethane foams, authentic/animal leather finishings, textile printing, soaps, OPP tape and inks.
Its first and initial product, so called MATAPEL UNIPOL, was actually invented same 20 years ago,yet already solvent and user friendly, UNIPOL has been serving the fiberglass industry since then. FRP industry was the first area served by PT MATA PELANGI. Nowadays, its market share in this area is about 90%. Strengthened by alliances with several local companies that manufacture raw materials for FRP industry, PT MATA PELANGI has positioned itself as the most complete supplier of FRP raw materials, providing anything from mold release agent, unsaturated polyester resin, liquid dyestuff, etc To expedite synthetic PVC and PU leather manufacturing and to yield better dispersion result, solvent-free MATAPEL UNIPLAST was innovated. Since its first debut, it has made coloring of synthetic leather a lot simpler and faster with a lot better result and pigment efficiency. Much of the direction and growth in the paint and coatings industry in recent years has been driven by developments in major product areas. Increasingly environmental legislation to reduce VOC emissions has resulted in growth across all non-solvent coating areas. To specifically answer this requirement the solvent-free MATAPEL UNICOAT and the water-based MATAPEL UNIQUA were introduced to the coating markets. In the booming textile industry in Indonesia, PT MATA PELANGI participates in supplying pigment dispersions for textile printing applications. Though newly introduced to the market, MATAPEL UNITEX has gained popularity with increasing market share in just a short time due to its attractive selection of colors, color strength, color brightness and its high pigment content. In rigid and flexible Polyurethane foams industry, MATAPEL UNIPOL UR is being used as the colorant.
Besides the pigment division, PT MATA PELANGI has also enlarged its scope to cover other chemical business by building three more divisions. The second division founded was the Special Additives division, in which we manufacture products such as Water-based Dispersing Agent, Solvent-based Dispersing Agent, Non-Silicone Anti Foam, Thickener, Anti-Float, Anti-Settling Agent, Anti Separation Agents and other additive specialties that we design, develop, and fine-tune to the specific needs in many industries. Dispersing Agents The most important operation in making a paint or ink according to a given formulation is the dispersion of pigments or fillers. Suitable machines, such as mixers and agitators are being used to achieve homogeneous products. While machinery is an aid, the most important role in achieving a good dispersion lies in the superb technology of the surface active chemicals being used, called dispersing agents. We offer a range of QUASPERSE for the water-based systems, and DISPERSEMAT for the solvent based systems. Our dispersing agents, when added to a suspending medium, will promote uniform and maximum separation of the pigment's or fillers solid particles. Antifoams Antifoams are materials which prevent foam formation. Defoamers are materials which break existing foam. In both cases, the material must have low surface tension, insolubility in foaming system, inert, low volatility and effectiveness at low concentration. Our ANTI FOAM range has been developed to act both as an antifoam and as a defoamer. With its 100% active ingredient content, it possesses all the above characters of this type of chemical. It has also been widely used to eliminate and prevent surface foam and enhance air in paint industry, printing inks, adhesives, as well as in water treatment plants, and other industries. Other additives Whatever the problem is from floating, settling to separating and others, our Special Additives division products can be the solution to your problem.
Silicone is very inert, non-toxic and special product with distinguished properties and can be used in plenty of applications. There are two products currently commercially available from this division: Silicone Emulsion and Silicone Rubber. Silicone Emulsions Silicone emulsion is widely used as a release agent for tires, industrial rubber parts, plywood and plastic products. Other uses include surface synthetic fiber fabric softener, nonstickingprevention, leather and upholstery surface protection, cutting knife, etc. Our silicone emulsions are very stable emulsions and areavailable in silicone concentrations of 30% (S230E), 33% (S233E), 60% (S260E), and 70% (S270CONC). Silicone Rubber Silicone Rubber is the most versatile and the best quality mold making material available nowadays in industrial world, suitable for a wide range of molding requirements. Polyester and epoxy resins, low temperature metals, acrylic, urethane and urethane foam, concrete, waxes, and plaster can all be molded and formed using silicone rubber molds. Silicone Rubber is an inorganic material with unique characters that make it perform much better compared to other mold making materials such as epoxy, urethane and other organic materials like latex rubber.
