It is BASF's most advanced generation of interference pigments and exhibits the highest chromaticity with a new, optimized particle size distribution referred to as “H” fraction. The targeted market segment for Lumina Royal Blue is automotive coatings, consumer electronics, sporting goods and print packaging.
Sicopal Orange L 2430 (newly launched in Asia)
Latest developments in paint technology and color trends require new pigments. BASF introduces a newly inorganic orange: Sicopal Orange L 2430 to meet the highest requirements in orange and red shades in the coatings industry. It allows coating manufacturers to extend color space coverage with inorganic pigments.
Glacier Frost White effect pigments (newly launched in Asia)
Glacier Frost White effect pigments represent the newest generation of synthetic mica flakes coated with titanium dioxide. Conventional pearl pigments usually have a yellowish appearance due to colored impurities of the mica core. For aesthetic reasons, more pure and white appearance of pearl pigments is desired. Glacier Frost White effect pigment provides a clean pearl appearance with blue undertone as well as sparkling effects in all shade areas.
