We are experts in effect pigments and functional powders. Our metallic pigments and powders are a household name in the industry and are sold around the world through our global network.

Our production facility and headquarters are located in Kortrijk, BELGIUM, Europe. High quality, narrow specification, stability and consistency are the cornerstones of our production process. From our effect pigments, such as Gold Bronze pigments and Silver Aluminium pigments, to more functional powders, such as Aluminium powders, Copper powders and Zinc powders, we use an unique milling production process that sets us apart from the competition and gives added value to the end product.
