Pyrisma® effect pigments from EMD Performance Materials are setting new standards in the world of interference effects, with extraordinary color saturation and color variety. This innovative pigment generation was developed especially for the requirements of the coatings industry. It is providing designers with new styling options while also offering technical performance and surface quality like never before. With its optimized particle size distribution and eight perfectly matched interference tones, it covers the maximum color space, in accordance with the "EMD Performance Materials Color Space" concept.
„Pyrisma Color Space™”: Eight basic tones for a color concerto
The Pyrisma® product series is based on natural mica. Its secret lies in the specially developed titanium dioxide interference layers. The color angle of each Pyrisma® interference pigment is predetermined using highly developed, complex colorimetric calculations. The eight Pyrisma® interference tones – yellow, red, magenta, violet, indigo, blue, turquoise and green – open up the maximum possible color space for the particle size distribution (PSD) given, based on the foundation of the "EMD Performance Materials Color Space Concept". By mixing the members of this perfectly matched pigment family, fascinating new color worlds for coatings can be opened up.
Intense color effects in the thinnest coating layers
With a minimum number of pigments, Pyrisma® allows intense color effects even in the thinnest coating layers. An additional surface treatment gives the product family its particular weather resistance and allows it to be used in all imaginable coating applications. Pyrisma® develops its capabilities in the automotive sector and architecture in particular, where components are exposed to the elements but are still expected to maintain their color over years. Variants without special stabilization are available for inside applications, such as industrial coatings, dispersion and artists paints.
