Creating Value through Colour

For over 20 years, our mission has been to work alongside our customers, helping them to make the best of their colour offer. Our goal is to help them Create Value through Colour.

Our main activity is to produce and market dispersions of pigments (commonly called colorants) to tint paints either in factory or at point of sale.

Over the years, we have built up an international network of suppliers, and this has allowed us to consolidate a business of the trading of powder pigments for colours and effects in sectors also outside paints (like plastic, ink, textile, leather…). Today this has become one of the pillars of our company.

Iris Green is the market leader for tinting systems in Italy and does business in over 30 countries with more than 400 customers. We are an Italian company with deep local roots, and belong to an International group which does business around the world.

Laboratory

Right from the start, we have been focused on: innovation, technology and service provided by our laboratory. Our expert technical team have one of the best equipped laboratories in this field, which allows us to monitor all the main chemical-physical issues associated with the various processes of research, development, production and marketing of our products.

We like to be considered more Partners than Suppliers and our laboratory is at our Customers’ disposal to assist them:

  • optimize the selection of pigments
  • improve the compatibility between colorants and paint products
  • characterize the base paints
  • build the formula database

The goal is to obtain the same color in the various product lines by minimizing the cost of the formula and optimizing the features of the paint product: coverage, yield, drying time, gloss level, film hardness, light and weather fastness.

Our laboratory is equipped with the Color-Matching systems, most present on the market, to be able to adapt to the systems in use by our customers.

In addition to our standard products, we are often called upon to develop customized products and countertypes to improve the tinting systems of our Customers. In the last 15 years our laboratory has developed, in the various lines, more than 500 custom references.

Regulatory Office

Iris Green has a Regulatory Office to guarantee compliance with the various markets and maintain constant updates on continuously evolving regulatory requirements. Customer is at the center of all our efforts: technical, commercial, logistic, regulatory. All our pigments are REACH registered, directly or through our suppliers.
