Engelhard Corp. has extended mica pigment possibilities with its new Vegetable Black Olive pigment.
Engelhard said the pigment is black with champagne undertones. The mica-based product allows brown and black shades in mica pigmentation. Previously, absorption colors were available for mica only in green, pale gold and russet-red, according to the Iselin, N.J., firm.
The company said its new pigment can help make gun metal and silver colors and will add an unusually bright face to dark-shade metallics. It is available in industrial and exterior grades.
