The pearlescent effect amplifies deepness and outlines and can also be used to accentuate other colours. With special effects, new designs are possible, enabling brand manufacturers and distributors to attract attention on their products. The pearlescent effect can be used alone or as a shade of colour and is adequate for different printing ink systems like flexo, engraving, serigraphy and offset printing. Decorative pearlescent pigments can reproduce the special shine and colours of natural pearls or of metal. By changing the particles size it is possible to match exactly the intended application.
