„Metallic finishes and autonomous driving - it works! With these new pigments, your paints are ideally prepared for the future of transportation.”

Annika Mergner
Manager Automotive Coatings

This technology places special demands on the painting of attachments and the pigments used for them. Conventional metal pigments absorb or reflect radar rays and thus dampen the radar radiation above certain pigment concentrations.

It was therefore long assumed that the established full silver tones would no longer be feasible for autonomous vehicles due to their comparatively high pigmentation with metal pigments.

ECKART is the first effect pigment manufacturer worldwide to present a product solution.

Ideal partners for radar transparency

The combination of selected ECKART metallic pigments with the innovative pigments of SYMIC OEM Opaque Silver & LUXAN CFX B604 Midnight Silver achieves highly attractive silver shades with low radar damping.
