Lumina Royal Blue is a new intense red-shade blue interference pigment, which allows reduced amounts of pigment in standard effect shades, thereby improving the physical properties of the coating without sacrificing the overall interference effect. Lumina Royal Blue is the first high-chromaticity effect pigment being launched as part of BASF’s extension to the Lumina effect pigment portfolio. This new effect pigment offers the highest color strength, brightness, brilliancy and chromaticity of any blue pigment currently available, the company said.
Heliogen Blue L 6600 F is the latest development in blue Heliogen pigments. Heliogen Blue L 6600 F is a Pigment Blue 15:6 copper phthalocyanine blue pigment with enhanced coloristic performance and excellent secondary properties. Its color strength leads to improved economy in application in that less pigment is needed, which leads to higher cost effectiveness. The pigment is a member of the “neutral flop” blue series. The neutral color flop allows styling trends with limited color shift when viewed from different angels.
