Pearlescent Pigments

Geopearl® products are a range of premium quality pearlescent effect pigments. The characteristic shimmer of Geopearl® has been designed to match the unique luster of natural pearls. The basic structure is a platelet of natural mica which is coated with a metal oxide. GEOTECH offers titanium dioxide, iron oxide and colour coated pearlescent pigments.

Geopearl® pearlescent pigments provide unsurpassed performance in brightness and colour play from white to earth tone effects. This is as a result of reflected, refracted and transmitted light patterns developed at the multiple interfaces between the layers. There are over 120 different products available in a selection of particle size distributions: matte softness (1 – 5 µm) to scattering reflection (100 – 1000 µm).

Geopearl® pearlescent pigments are able to create an infinite range of visual effects that capture your eye and give unrivalled elegance to any finished product.

Geopearl® water and wax based preparations are specially designed products for the coating and plastic industry. Geopearl® preparations are dust free and have an excellent influence on the throughput in production showing better flow ability.

Geopearl® WR pigments are weather resistant pearlescent pigments for exterior applications. This range has been designed especially for automotive paints and other coating systems for outdoor applications.

Geopearl® pigments are non-toxic, water- and solvent resistant effect pigments. They are in compliance with the regulations for cosmetics, plastics and coatings. 

Besides the natural mica based pigments GEOTECH's product portfolio of pearlescent pigments also contains a wide variety of synthetic micas(Geopearl® Crystal) and borosilicate pigments (Geodiamond®).
