MORE INFO ABOUT OUR COLOUR PRODUCTS  

LUCID COLOUR PIGMENTS & COLOURANTS

Our pure pigments and colourants are made here in South East Queensland,

in Australia, first established way back in 1999. We invested in pigment production after the slow closure of the ICI plant (pigment manufacturing

plant) in Melbourne from 1996 to a final closure in 2001 due to the demand

for cheaper China manufactured colour imported products. We honestly

believe in Australian made, innovation and investment to produce a higher

quality pigment/colour products then cheaper lower quality imported colour.

High quality pigments are the largest component of our manufacturing and business as well producing our unique colour brand name products and also custom manufacturing for many private companies and their label products.

FULL TRANSPARENT TINTS by Lucid Colour

Are the world's clearest colourants! We make the most pure colour that is possible, then using our patent technologies we colour the liquid carrier and take out all the impurities. The carrier [base B] is made in our lab and is rated non flammable, has low odour and a very slow evaporation rate for the

users safety (low VOC's). Our [Base B] carrier is universal and can be used in polyesters, epoxies, polyurethanes, solvent acrylics and most solvent based paints. It is NOT dangerous goods rated so it can be sent via 

air mail (IATA approved). Liquid form makes mixing into your resin, base,

monomer, paint or chemicals very easy! Example photo to the left is using Lucid Colour liquid tinters, plus Mafia Pigments, and this amazing artwork was created by one of our art clients Martine @ Martine's Gallery in Sydney.    www.martinegallery.com

at adjusting viscosity, the carrier surface tension which creates changes in fluid dynamics, to help colour reactions and inter-actions in your artworks.

into your main base carrier. (250 gram minimum per colour)

 

UNIVERSAL PIGMENT TINTERS for Water Base OR Solvent Base

Every pigment is different in chemistry to another and this is why some

pigments work better in paints than others. Some pigments only work in

solvent based paints and others for water based paints. We have paint 

tints that cover all types of paints, including candy paints and colours as

well as colour tints and additives for metallic paint finishes and other

paint tints or paint special effects. We can mix our tints into your paint

to save you the guess work! We have now reduced our minimum order from 1kg tins now down to just 50 gram jars as we have more small scale and indie artists using these universal tinters for water or solvent bases.

 

PURE PIGMENTS Handmade for Artists

There is a long tradition in the art discipline of only using earth pigments or formulated pigments that exactly match earth 

pigments in color, hue & chemical equation. The traditional

pigments used by artists are limited to about 100 different

colours like Prussian blue and cadmium yellow, red oxide

or Raw Sienna etc...  Our pure art chemistry pigments match

earth pigments exactly in chemical equation, colour, weight

and mixability. Best of all our artist pigments have less impact 

on the earth, are easier to wet out and are much more cost 

effective than earth pigments. Picture right is one of our stockists

in japan specializing in pigments for ink and some for painting.

 

PANTONE Colour Pigment Pastes

We make pantone pigments in epoxy, polyester, acrylic and

20 other base carriers. Here at Lucid Colour & Mafia Pigments we use the internationally reconized Pantone

colour system. Pantone books, chips and swatches are

available at www.pantone.com as we only manufacture colourants, pigments and tints. We can also colour match to RAL, Munsel, Cie Lab, Cie XYZ and other colour geometry

or colour space values and colormetry systems. 

 

SPECIAL EFFECTS & Other Colour Additives

Here at Lucid Colour we offer a large amount of special effects including chameleons, iridescence, daylight fluoro's, and brights, glow in dark, UV lighted fluoro's, metallics, pearlescence, interference colourants, temperature changing colours,

micas, glass pigments, glass flakes, plastic flakes, candy

over chrome, lazer activated colours just to name a few.

 

INKS and Alcohol Inks 

Inks can get technical, and making really good inks isn't easy!

Not all pigments and colourants will work as an ink. Settling and

colour seperation becomes the next problem, followed closely by

getting the perfect viscosity and drying times! It really is an exact

science, our laboratory can work directly with you to manufacture

the perfect inks with the selected attributes and performance you

require. We stock a range of Alcohol & Solvent inks.

 

SOLVENT ACRYLICS Pigments & Tints

Acrylic resin (thermosetting & Cast Acrylics) and Poly/Acrylic blends can be very hard to colour. We have had 18 years experience working

with these more complex resins and also making colour for these 

resins. We currently work with Australia's leading Art, Jewellery, Homeware, and Furniture manufacturers that cast and pour in this medium, as well as commercial and industrial applications with these resins. At Lucid Colour we have stock colour range or we can develop new colours and provide testing for catalyst reactions and temperature changes or exothermic factors when using our

colour additives in these free radical reactions and redox systems.
