Firemist® Effect Pigments
Firemist® effect pigments bring products to life with brilliant color and glittering effects. These advanced pigments, which create an exceptionally high visual impact, are specially formulated to out-perform traditional pearlescent pigments in chroma, color purity, brightness, transparency and reflectivity. Firemist® pigments have a smooth surface, large, and shimmering particles. They are ideal for automotive interior applications such as powder coatings, plastic or leather coatings. They are also approved for food contact, making them suitable for decorative applications on food packaging materials.
