Sun Chemical advances digital colour innovation with new Lumina® Royal Sparkling Blue

21 January 2022

Sun Chemical continues to build its colour library with its mobile-based application, PigmentViewer App, featuring the company’s newest launch, Lumina Royal Sparkling Blue, a high chroma, blue-shade effect pigment with intense colour. It joins the popular Lumina® Royal family of products, all of which are included in PigmentViewer App’s comprehensive colour library.

PigmentViewer App is built on virtual renderings that capture the whole appearance potential of a pigment, enabling the designer to evaluate the colour "panel” in a digital format. In this case, the "panel” is replaced by the smartphone or e-tablet display.

Visualisation of the colour from different angles may be achieved by changing the angle of the device relative to the viewer. The viewer needs only treat the device as if it were a conventional panel or sample, and with regular movement, the digital pigment application creates colour travel as one would observe in a real-life physical environment.

In addition to viewing individual effect pigments from the company’s comprehensive portfolio, PigmentViewer App also offers the option to compare two pigments side by side on one screen, improving upon the traditional method of evaluating one panel at a time.

Delivering exceptional chromaticity and unmatched lightness, Lumina® Royal Sparkling Blue joins the comprehensive effect pigment portfolio of products in PigmentViewer App. The effect pigment can be used to create vibrant new colours and styling options throughout the aqua to violet colour areas.

Similar to the Lumina® Royal family’s most recent additions such as Lumina Royal Blue Russet or Lumina Royal sienna, Lumina® Royal Sparkling Blue provides strong sparkle to achieve an attractive eye-catching appearance. It provides broad suitability across many applications, including automotive, industrial and packaging.
