Candurin® - Silver Colors

Candurin® - Silver Colors

EMD Performance Materials’ Candurin® silver colors are based on mica (E 555) coated with a thin layer of titanium dioxide (E 171). They are available in a variety of particle size distributions, ranging from less than 15 microns to 150 microns. Fine particle size pigments exhibit a satiny sheen and are relatively opaque, whereas with increasing particle size, the pigments are more brilliant, lustrous and transparent. Candurin® is ideally compatible with any other colors.

Candurin® - Interference Colors

Candurin® - Interference Colors

EMD Performance Materials’ Candurin® interference colors are based on mica (E 555) coated with titanium dioxide (E 171). The characteristic single reflection color of each pigment is an optical effect caused by light interference. Through controlled thickness of the titanium dioxide layer, the colors of the rainbow can be achieved.
