Colorants for inks

Since 1985 Functional Materials’ proprietary colorant technology has been used to help develop the brand identity for major consumer credit cards industry, including the Gold and Platinum programs for Visa, Mastercard / Europay, American Express, Citibank and other major national and international card issuers.

FM Group developed Gold Eagle® and Silver Fox® pigments, which spurred the drive to create the metallic effects seen in many credit cards and other consumer plastics today. Aluminum and copper-colored pigments are also available, along with a wide range of other metallic, flourescent, and phosphorescent pigments in a variety of vehicles, including inks, plastic colorants, and coatings.

FM’s powdered pigments can be custom-blended to provide you with unique colors, to be used to develop your own vibrant inks and plastic colors.
