Guidelines for adding Mica to Paints and Coatings


Special effect pigments are frequently used in automotive coatings, plastic coatings, dispersion paints, printing inks, floor coatings and artist paints. Proportions are not guaranteed. Please test your formula with samples before purchasing a large amount.

Our special effect pigments can be applied under as well as over process colors 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.
