These pearl luster pigments are leading the market and allow for a wide range of color effects. Based on natural or synthetic mica, they are covered with a thin layer of metal oxides and help achieve a variety of color effects that rival nature. They are suited for coatings, plastics and printing applications.
These eight perfectly coordinated interference pigments are based on natural mica. Developed according to the Merck Color Space Concept, they cover the maximum color space. Mixing neighboring effect pigments makes it possible to create nearly unlimited application possibilities in terms of color. Optimized particle distribution, unusual color saturation, and little texture make Pyrisma® pigments an excellent choice for coatings, plastics and printing applications.
The Colorstream® effect pigments achieve unique multicolor effects. Even in subdued light, the interplay of color of these pigments is impressive. Their aesthetic appearance is due to a subtle, soft color travel. Colorstream® pigments are ideal for use in printing inks, plastics and coatings.
