Pearl Luster Pigments

The shimmer of pearl luster pigments is fascinating not only in the Christmas season. The high quality pearlescent pigments consist of mica or borosilicate flakes coated with metal oxides in an elaborate process that makes them extremely lightfast and eminently suitable for artists’ paints. Mixtures with translucent pigments achieve a whole new range of pearlescent hues. Milori blue or phthalo blue with an Ekaton white pearlluster pigment results in a blue metallic color; phthaloblue or green with Colibrigold results in intense green metallic colors.


Thin natural mica flakes are coated with a thin layer of metal oxide, such as titanium dioxide and / or iron oxide. Through a combination of transparency, refractive index, coating thickness and multiple reflections varied color effects are produced, such as those found elsewhere only in nature - silver white, interference, gold and multi-colored metallic luster effects.


Pigments based on synthetic borosilicate flakes (a type of synthetic gem) have extremely smooth surfaces. With its brilliant and colorful sparkle and strong shine they give surfaces a certain air of extravagance: extraordinary sparkle, brilliance and high gloss, high transparency and unique rainbow effect. The MIRA pearlescent pigments are almost colorless, transparent pigments. On a dark background they give a colored glitter effect that is particularly brilliant in glossy binders.


These pigments are based on natural muscovite mica with a special titanium interference layer. The hue angle of each variety of Pyrisma® was determined by use of advanced complex colorimetric calculation. With their exceptional color saturation and the especially developed particle size distribution these pigments set a new standard. Their excellent performance and their resistance to environmental influences make them especially suitable for outdoor applications.
