Special effect pigments are frequently used in automotive coatings, plastic coatings, dispersion paints, printing inks, floor coatings and artist paints.
our special effect pigments can be applied under as well as over process colours and thus create an unlimited variety of special effects.

The particle size of pigments have significant influence on the final effect. Particle sizes up to approx. 25 micron create pearly effects with high covering. Larger particle sizes give bright to glittering effects and are more transparent.

Special effect pigments generally disperse well. They are stable in water and solvent based systems.

Special effect pigments have been used in the plastic industry for many years now. 

They can turn basic plastics into special, unique products.

Potential areas of application cover several methods of thermoplastic processing such as extrusion, co-extrusion, injection molding and casting resins for buttons, jewellery and more.

In extrusion processes the use of masterbatches or compounds is the best way to achieve colour and effect in end products.
Special effect pigments can be used directly in powder form in various types of plastics.

Pearlescent pigments are very stable and best processed at temperatures at the upper end of the range.
