The FERRICON products represent ECKART’s well-known metallic effect pigments on the basis of carbonyl iron. FERRICON fascinates with a distinctive, very dark colour flop from grey metallic to black metallic.
Thanks to their magnetic characteristics, the FERRICON pigments offer a captivating design option: Using permanent or electromagnets, the pigments can be re-oriented along the magnetic lines of force, thus creating unique effects with fascinating depth and a three-dimensional appearance.
This technique is already employed for many decorative purposes. FERRICON has now found a new application: the decoration of walls. The FERRICON pigments in the still damp wall paint align themselves to a magnetic stencil which is stamped or rolled onto the wall paint.
