Cobalt-based pigments provide ease of dispersion with excellent dimensional stability, resulting in no warping or shrinkage. They are available in a wide range of colors including cobalt violet, cobalt blue, cobalt turquoise, cobalt green, cobalt yellow, and cobalt black. Cobalt pigments are powdery to slightly gritty or granular, relatively non-staining, moderately saturated, semi-transparent, and very permanent.
 

Additionally, tremendous heat & chemical stability and good solvent resistance have made cobalt highly desirable in silicone paints, powder coatings, and inks. Paints & coatings are some of the major applications of these pigments. The increasing number of construction and infrastructure projects are likely to drive the demand for cobalt-based pigments. The demand for decorative and industrial paints is anticipated to increase significantly over the coming years due to housing and infrastructure development.
