FERRICON - Metallic effect pigments for
The metallic effect pigment FERRICON opens up a variety of possibilities for innovative effect coatings. Using high-purity carbonyl iron and new grinding technology, a product has been produced that matches conventional silver dollar pigments in terms of its application characteristics.
Its optical appearance, on the other hand, is unique: the pigment has a distinctive colour flop from metallic grey to metallic black. Such dark flop effects could previously not be reproduced using a single effect pigment. The pigment is therefore
ideal for creating dark shades and strong metallic effects.
The pigment’s excellent wetting properties and the outstanding pigment orientation that goes with it create homogeneous and brilliant surfaces with good hiding power.
Its magnetic properties give FERRICON a special edge: using permanent or electromagnets, the pigments along the lines of force can be reoriented, thus creating unique effects with fascinating depth and a three-dimensional appearance.
