Merck KGaA

Merck's Candurin® silver colors are based on mica (E 555) coated with a thin layer of titanium dioxide (E 171). They are available in a variety of particle size distributions, ranging from less than 15 microns to 150 microns. Fine particle size pigments exhibit a satiny sheen and are relatively opaque, whereas with increasing particle size, the pigments are more brilliant, lustrous and transparent. Candurin® is ideally compatible with any other colors.
