MEARLIN pigments are transparent and light-reflecting mica platelets coated with titanium dioxide and/or iron oxide that provide both color and exciting visual effects to a variety of coatings, plastics, and printing ink applications. Light reflected from the platelets creates a sense of depth and a luster with satin-sheen to sparkly or glitter-like effects. Some Mearlin special effect pigments have a multiple color play and flop in which the color changes with the viewing angle.


  • Transparency, light reflection, high reflection index
  • Totally non-reactive and nontoxic
  • CFS chrome-free surface treatment improves adhesion and resistance to humidity in water-based coatings and chip resistance in solvent-based coatings
  • Multiple color play and dynamic color travel or "flop" in which the color changes with the viewing angle
