A deep green-blue powder produced by high temperature calcination. This green pigment provides high near-infrared reflectance, good UV and visible opacity, is chemically inert, heat resistant, and stable to ultraviolet light. It is non-bleeding and non-migratory. It has exceptional durability and good hiding power. It is generally used in camouflage applications where high reflectance in the near IR region is desired, coupled with resistance to heat, light, and weather. It is compatible with most resin systems and polymers, and is non-warping.
