Pearlescent pigments

Pearlescent pigments

Ranging from the soft sheen of a pearl to the shimmering iridescent play of colours in a butterfly’s wings, pearlescent pigments provide a kaleidoscope of possibilities to create unique lustre and eye-catching colour effects. The secret of the fascinating pearlescent effect lies in a special pigment structure composed of synthetic mica platelets or artificial glass substrates and consecutive semitransparent layers of metaloxides.

In combination with reflected and diffracted light, the metal oxides and their various combinations produce an almost infinite range of visual effects.
The new series of SYMIC and LUXAN pearlescent pigments are available over the entire colour spectrum ranging from silver white and various interference colours to earth and gold tones. Outstanding colour purity, excellent gloss, as well as optimum coverage properties, ensure elegant special effects in all common applications.

Latest development is our LUXAN Sparkle range: Dust-free, brilliant and easy to use effect pigments.
