The White and Interference Geodiamond® pigments out-perform traditional mica based pearlescent pigments in luster, brightness, transparency and reflectivity. They create an exceptionally high visual impact. This makes them suitable for all kinds of colour cosmetic and personal care applications like nail polishes, pressed powders, wax based systems, emulsions and gels.
The exclusive Geodiamond® Silver Ag pigments produce an extremely brilliant mirror like reflection (>88%) and sparkling effect which cannot be achieved by any other technology. The main applications are colour cosmetics (lip glosses, eyeliners, pressed powders and nail polishes) and high-end printing inks.
Geodiamond® pigments also enhance the feeling of depth in coating applications due to the transparency of the borosilicate flakes. They are ideal for automotive trim applications such as powder coatings or plastic and leather coatings.
Geodiamond® pigments are non-toxic, water and solvent resistant. They are in compliance with common regulations.
Besides glass flake pigments our product portfolio of pearlescent pigments also contains a wide variety of natural mica and synthetic mica based products.
