EMD Chemicals Inc. has introduced Miraval, a new generation of brilliant glittering pigments. Miraval 5411 Magic White combines silver-white glitter with a colorful, rainbow-like highlight. This pigment is the first EMD pigment based on borosilicate platelets. With less than 1µm, they are extremely thin and have a very smooth surface. With its pure white mass tone color and its minimal light dispersion, Miraval Magic White is highly transparent and opens up styling potential for tinted as well as colored backgrounds, according to the company.
Miraval is suitable for screen, flexo and offset coating applications especially in UV inks and coatings for the textile, packaging, toy and electronic industries. More info: EMD Chemicals Inc., (888) 3673275; web: www.emdpigments.com.
