Infrared reflective pigments deliver the best lifetime value

Arctic® Pigments can delay or eliminate costly
damage caused by sunlight.


Arctic® Pigments deliver the best lifetime value because their performance delays or eliminates costly damage caused by sunlight.

Less warping, twisting, fading and failure means big maintenance savings for any application.

Products that use Arctic Infrared Powder Pigments stay cooler, which means they are less prone to sun damage and enable more comfortable and sustainable environments.

Less fading, distortion and damage

Increase TSR

Improve product longevity

Materials colored with Arctic Pigments have aesthetically pleasing visual color but decrease the amount of energy they absorb by reflecting the invisible IR light back into the atmosphere.

Batch after batch, year after year, achieve consistent color in your process while increasing total solar reflectance (TSR) of your products.
