Geopearl® water and wax based preparations are specially designed products for the plastic industry. They have an excellent influence on the throughput in materbatch production. The higher bulk density of the preparations in comparison to the powder form allows a considerable higher throughput in a twin-screw extruder. In addition Geopearl® preparations are dust free and show an improved flowability which prevents hopper plugging.
Geopearl® WR pigments are weather resistant pearlescent pigment for exterior applications. This range has been designed especially for automotive paints and other coating systems for outdoor applications.
Geopearl® pigments are non toxic, water- and solvent resistant effect pigments. They comply to the main regulations for cosmetics, plastics and coatings. Geotech is capable to give support in terms of counter typing and colour matching. Pigments and shades can be analysed in the laboratory to help customers chosing the right effect pigments for their product.
