conventional natural mica pearlescent pigments for plastics
Geopearl® pearlescent pigments for the plastic industry
Geopearl® pearlescent pigments create an infinite range of visual effects that capture your eyes and give unrivalled elegance to plastic products. The extensive portfolio contains over 75 natural mica based pearlescent pigments which provide luxury to coloured plastic products.
Geopearl® pigments are used worldwide in plastic applications such as extrusion, co-extrusion and injection moulding. These special effect pigments are mainly incorporated into colour concentrates, named master batches, to give colour and effect to various types of plastics such as PVC, PE, PC, PMMA, PS, ABS and PP.
The characteristic shimmer of Geopearl® has been designed to match the unique lustre of natural pearls. The basic structure is a platelet of mica which is coated with a metal oxide. We offer titanium dioxide and iron oxide coated pearlescent pigments.
Resulting from reflected, refracted and transmitted light patterns developed at the multiple interfaces between the layers, Geopearl® pearlescent pigments provide unsurpassed performance in brightness and colour play.
The mica used as a substrate for this product line is responsibly mined. To keep working on a more ethical, traceable and environmentally friendly mica chain we are a member of the Responsible Mica Initiative (RMI).
