With the pearlescent pigments from our product categories LUXAN and SYMIC you can achieve outstanding effects. Their transparency and extremely pure color shades open up endless possibilities for creative applications. LUXAN and SYMIC are also fascinating designers and could be used in many different ways for creative art work.
LUXAN is based on synthetically produced glass whereas SYMIC is based on synthetically produced mica. Thin flakes of these two raw materials become unique pearlescent pigments by means of our high-end coatings and classifying technologies. The effect varies from silky gloss to glittering sparkle depending on the particle size of the pigment. Both product categories impress with their brilliant optical characteristics when compared to conventional pearlescent pigments.
