The mica-based pearl luster pigments refine coatings for interior and exterior applications. In doing so, they create unique luster and color effects which otherwise only occur in nature – from silver-white, red and bronze-colored earth tones and interference to gold luster. The effect varies from silky smooth to glittery, depending on the particle size distribution. The interplay between transparency, refraction and multiple reflection determines the enormous variety of effects.
pearl luster pigments consist of thin platelets of the natural material mica, coated in a wafer-thin layer of metal oxide. This creates semi-transparent pigments which give a coating the soft, deep luster that is characteristic of pearls and mother-of-pearl. With its outstanding visual and technical properties,It is used in a wide range of coating applications, especially in the automotive sector, architecture, textile and other industrial sectors Pearl pigments are also offered with an additional coating layer especially for exterior applications. These weather-resistant pigments thus fulfill the highest requirements of reproducibility and lasting color consistency.
Pearl pigment is widely used in the cosmetics, plastics, ink, leatheroid, leather, wallpaper, porcelain enamel and pottery, building paint and other industries.
