Lubrizol acquires dye, pigment company in UK

CLEVELAND, US: The Lubrizol Corporation has acquired Diamond Dispersions Ltd, a company exclusively focused on the production of water-based dye and pigment dispersions for inks used in digital printing. Headquartered in Sheffield, UK, Diamond Dispersions has established itself as a high quality, responsive and innovative producer of dispersions, gaining a significant share in this growing niche market.

Diamond Dispersions will advance Lubrizol Performance Coatings' goal to grow its portfolio of products that enable digital printing.

Diamond Dispersions is now part of Lubrizol Advanced Materials, reporting into Lubrizol's performance coatings business. This transaction includes all intellectual property, trademarks and customer lists of Diamond Dispersions.

"The combined technologies, knowledge and expertise of both companies will drive further innovation across product lines and position Lubrizol as the preferred partner for ink makers seeking to develop new digital print systems for this growing market. In addition to our dispersant, specialty additive and resin product lines, ink manufacturers will now have the opportunity to source fully formulated dispersions through Lubrizol," said Sanjay Kalhan, general manager of Lubrizol performance coatings.
