Formulating special effect pigments
Different from other organic pigments, ours are inorganic pigments. The particle size of piant pigments have significant influence on the final effect. Particle sizes up to approx. 25 micron create pearly effects with high covering. Larger particle sizes give bright to glittering effects and are more transparent.
Our coating pigment generally disperse well. They are stable in water and solvent based systems.
