The Paliocrom evolution

It all began in 1983 with the invention of Paliocrom® and the chemical vapor deposition (CVD) process. Work began on Paliocrom® gold and the first product, Gold L 2000, was presented to customers in 1991. Two years later, the introduction of the first automotive shade "Apache" boosted sales for the Opel Tigra. In 2000, passive Paliocrom® grades for waterborne applications were invented and in the period from 1997 to 2016, the capacity of the CVS process was expanded four times in line with product developments.

Our timeline shows how the Paliocrom® pigment family has grown to fill the yellow-to-red color range.
