Our Performance Materials add color to everyday life
The portfolio of EMD Performance Materials is as diverse as the colors of the rainbow – be it groundbreaking liquid crystals and OLED materials for displays, materials for the production of integrated circuits or effect pigments for coatings and color cosmetics or functional materials for energy solutions.
We are the world market and technology leader in liquid crystals. Unstoppable in our quest to advance display technology, our products have enabled razor-sharp images in smartphones, laptops, flat-screen TVs and tablet PCs around the world.
We also lead the global market in pearlescent pigments. They add shimmer to the paint on your car, sparkle to your lipstick and luminescence to the coating on your packaging. But our work with pigments goes beyond color and shimmer. Our functional pigments impart unique physical properties to many diverse products, from antistatic floor coverings and counterfeit-proof product labels, to heat-reflecting blinds.
