Biflair® are brilliant silver-white effect pigments from Merck. Their unique, intense silky luster gives the impression of liquid metal, combining a high degree of whiteness with outstanding hiding ability.
Fine appearance based on crystals
Biflair® are pastes with effect pigments based on bismuth oxychloride (BiOCl), which is extracted in a special crystallization process. With its brilliance and deep effect, the luster of BiOCl crystals cannot be reached by pearlescent pigments made from mica platelets. Thanks to their square or octagonal shape of platelets and tight particle size distribution, the semi-transparent crystals form an even, fine appearance with soft, subtle luster effects. Biflair® pigment pastes are available in a range of dispersions for a wide variety of binder systems.
Coatings which give an exclusive or futuristic impression
The three-dimensional appearance and intense silky luster of Biflair® adds value to plastic, leather, wood and industrial coatings, as well as artists' and dispersion paints. For example, they give household appliances and products in consumer and entertainment electronics, as well as sports and high-tech devices, an exclusive or futuristic look.
The versatile Biflair® effect pigments can be mixed with many different organic and inorganic pigments , thereby creating a wide spectrum of colors. Combining them with Merck's classic Iriodin® range offers an almost unlimited number of effects.
Biflair® also gives plastics and print products an incomparably deep silky luster.
