Applications for Iriodin®

Coatings

With its outstanding visual and technical properties, Iriodin® is used in a wide range of coating applications, especially in the automotive, architectural, and other industrial sectors. Iriodin® pigments are also offered with an additional coating layer especially for exterior applications. These weather-resistant pigments thus fulfill the highest requirements of reproducibility and lasting color consistency.

Printing and plastics

Iriodin® pearlescent pigments also open up an extraordinary variety of color effects in the printing industry. They can be worked into the print color or used in pre- or overprinting – for materials as diverse as paper, cardboard boxes, films, ceramic and glass surfaces and even textiles. Iriodin® is especially suited for use in gravure, flexo and screen printing and pressure coating. In every process, the smoother the printing material's surface and the thicker the layer, the better the color and luster effects.

Technical information

Iriodin® pearl luster pigments consist of thin platelets of the natural material mica, coated in a wafer-thin layer of metal oxide. This creates semi-transparent pigments which give a coating the soft, deep luster that is characteristic of pearls and mother-of-pearl.

The effect varies from silky smooth to glittery, depending on the particle size distribution. The interplay between transparency, refraction and multiple reflection determines the enormous variety of effects.
