Technical information

The Pyrisma® product series is based on natural mica. Its secret lies in the specially developed titanium dioxide layers, which are responsible for the various interference effects. Eight Pyrisma® interference tones have been predetermined with the help of highly developed, complex colorimetric calculations. Mixing the members of this perfectly matched pigment family results in an almost infinite color spectrum.
