Coatings are present in daily life. You see it on by-passing cars, in your home decorations or the luxurious finish of your smartphone. It is our passion to give these products their deep jet-black color and brilliant performance with our excellent Carbon Black. WE KNOW BLACK and Orion is on a quest for Ultimate Blackness. Black is not just a color, it is an ubiquitous piece of elegance and beauty surrounding each of us. It is not just meant for the showroom, for everyday life.

Our pigments are one of the blackest currently available on the market. Based on our vast experience, we work together with our customers to develop coatings for even the most challenging requirements.

THE ULTIMATE BLACK

In addition to offering sophisticated pigments and individual formulation knowhow, Orion has improved optical metrology techniques to measure deep black in a scientific and reproducible manner.

The Orion colorist team has worked for years to develop suitable calibration tools (e.g. a so called black hollow body) and coated panels to create robust measurement results. We have also collaborated with independent testing facilities, as well as measurement equipment companies to optimize their equipment all in the pursuit to show correct undertones that live up to the highest scientific standards.
