Light Diffractive Pigment - Changes colour depending on the angle it is viewed from

€12.00

This flake pigment exhibits a variety of iridescent rainbow colors that vary by the angle at which it is viewed in relation to the angle of incident light. The pigment has a metallic appearance in low illumination and exhibits vivid rainbow colours in direct bright light. The flakes are highly reflective aluminum with a micro-structured transparent coating. The colours appear because of diffractive effects caused by the micro-structure on the surface of the flake – the same colour effects that are seen on CDs.

Used for:
The pigment is added to automotive paints and nail lacquers to create an eye-catching visual effect. It is also applied on textiles used for apparel and footwear, and on boards used for packaging for luxury goods.

Details:
There are different particle size grades available from the manufacturer. The pigment can be combined with other pigments and dyes to create new effects. The pigment is inorganic and will not fade in sunlight; it is well-suited for spray application and can also be applied by screen printing.

Idea:
Use it for a subtle colour effect on silver jewellery.
