Blagden October 2019 Press Release


On-trend new pigment brings fizz to premium range

An elegant, shimmering champagne shade, available from Blagden, is the latest addition to ECKART’s pearlescent pigment range.

A third pigment, recommended for premium automotive and industrial coatings, has been launched within ECKART’s EDELSTEIN range. The new pigment, EDELSTEIN Sunstone Champagne, is a refined champagne shade closely aligned with colour trends currently dominating the market and is available from Blagden Specialty Chemicals.

The pigment provides a surprising colour interplay depending on the angle of view or the way the light is reflected. By variously emitting a silver-white shimmer or a warm, mellow red colouring, it opens up exciting new possibilities for product design.

Like all synthetic pearlescent pigments in the EDELSTEIN range, EDELSTEIN Sunstone Champagne is based on a special selection of premium synthetic silicate. It is highly chemically resistant, has excellent shear stability, is easy to incorporate in all established applications, and has an exceptionally long shelf life. A CFX version will soon be available for applications with especially high resistance requirements.

The pigments are particularly recommended for premium automotive and industrial coatings and for plastics, especially household appliances and consumer electronics. EDELSTEIN Sunstone Champagne also produces attractive results in printing.

For further details about this and other products available from Blagden, please contact Michael Austin on 01959 560804 (email) for coatings applications or Philip Randall on 01959 560857 (email) for printing applications. And don’t miss us on Stand 233 at Surfex2020.
