Powder Pigments
Powder pigments are mainly used in the coloring of various construction materials. Due to the chemical composition and structure of these pigments, they are insoluble in water and diluted acids, resistant to cement, lime and alkaline and totally weather and light stable.

Micronized Pigments

These pigments fulfill the special requirements needed particularly in the paint and coating industry. Through micronization, an intense milling process, the level of pigment agglomerates is significantly reduced. As a result, these pigment grades exhibit high dispersibility.
