Special Effect Pigments In Powder Coatings
Jun 08, 2018

The use of special-effect pigments in powder coatings is also gaining popularity. Because of their ease of application and safety benefits, as well as their decorative appeal, effect pigments are gaining market share over metallics in the powder-coating industry.

The largest market for effect pigments is architectural coatings, which consist of aluminum panels and profiles. Gray metallic shades are the most popular colors for these applications, and can be achieved by combining black or gray powder coatings with exterior white pearlescent pigments. Mica-based effect pigments are a cost-effective and more durable alternative to aluminum pigments. Metallic pigments require an additional topcoat of clear resin to add durability and reduce tarnishing; mica-based effect pigments do not, because they are chemically inert.
