Miraval® – brilliant sparkle combined with soft rainbow effects. With its radiant luster and unusually brilliant shimmer, this pigment family from Merck gives coatings a touch of extravagance. It combines unique purity of colors with high transparency and intensive reflective power.
Perfect surfaces for optimum reflection
The secret of Miraval® is in its perfect inner quality: it consists of synthetic calcium aluminum borosilicate, coated with metal oxides. The substrate is completely transparent, developing extremely smooth, optically perfect surfaces for optimum reflection. Changing the concentration creates fascinating effects – from individual reflection points to a completely metallic character. To give formulations a soft shimmer or luster, Miraval® pigments can be included at a concentration of less than one percent – while retaining the same color intensity. The Miraval® Scenic series has a particle size of 10-100μm, Miraval® Magic of 20-200μm.
Weatherproof coatings for exterior applications
Miraval® effect pigments make every coating something very special. They are especially suited to powder coatings, industrial coatings and dispersion paints, and are used to refine leather fashion accessories, as well as household appliances and wood surfaces. With their additional coating, Miraval® lines developed especially for exterior use display outstanding weather resistance and allow the pigments to be used in facade coatings, for example. The different colored pigments in the Miraval® family can be combined in any way and offer an extraordinary variety of styling potential – even at the smallest concentrations.
