The methods we use for the production of natural mica ensure that your products will shine in all their aspects.
Colors & Effects cares about sustainability. This can be seen by the way we handle the mining and processing of one of the main components of many of our effect pigments, mica. This is one example of how Colors & Effects deals with sustainability issues and exemplifies our commitment to the principles we stand for.
After acquiring the natural mica mine in Hartwell, Georgia (USA), BASF’s Colors & Effects brand decided to pursue a complete in-house sourcing strategy for all natural mica-based pigments. By 2008, all BASF natural mica production was using mica flake mined by our wholly owned facility in Hartwell (shown here) and further processed and finished at two other USA facilities.
Based on our chemical expertise in the coatings, plastics, printing, cosmetics, and agro markets, BASF’s experts offer consultative solutions. Fueled by entrepreneurial spirit, we enable innovation and growth.
