COLOGNE, GERMANY: Lanxess AG said that its Bayferrox inorganic pigments brought colour to the race course at the Hydro-Quebec Montreal ePrix, the racing category for electric-powered cars.

The inorganic pigments (IPG) business unit supplied nearly 37 metric tons of charcoal-coloured Bayferrox 340 pigments to Canadian pre-cast concrete producer Beton Brunet based in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield, Quebec, for the construction of 5.5 kilometres of concrete barriers that lined both sides of the 2.75-kilometer race course. 

Concrete barriers with aesthetic appeal separate race course

Formula E features full electric-powered cars and uses city streets for the race course. The concrete barriers used to block off the course and separate the crowds from the raceway were specially designed and constructed for the event at twice the size of standard barriers and were adorned with Montreal’s city logo, adding aesthetic appeal. 

“The theme of sustainability that this whole project is about is a great fit, as it aligns with many of the values of our business. The Bayferrox pigments used in the project are SCS-certified. Scientific Certification Systems is one of the leading companies for independent certification and determines, for example, the proportion of recycled raw materials used in an industrial production process,”  said Lise Charron, account manager North America for the IPG business unit based in Montreal.

“We were happy to partner with Lanxess on this project and receive their support with colour selection and handling. The pigment experts were able to recommend a package size that could be directly dropped into our production process, eliminating dust, waste, extra handling steps and potential weighing errors,” added said Isabella Begin, project leader at Beton Brunet.
