DIC Establishes Pigments Technical Center Asia Pacific in Indonesia


DIC Corporation has established the Pigments Technical Center Asia Pacific located on the site of wholly owned Indonesian subsidiary PT. The facility is DIC Graphics’ Karawang plant, which is engaged primarily in the production of phthalocyanine blue pigments.

According to DIC, the Karawang plant’s key advantage is its integrated production capabilities, which encompass everything from phthalocyanine crude (pigment intermediates) for its own use to pigments for sale to customers. The Pigments Technical Center Asia Pacific, which is the first such facility in Southeast Asia, is expected to boost cooperation between production and technical departments, thereby driving the development of high-value-added products for markets worldwide, including Asia, the company stated.
