Complex inorganic pigments
Complex inorganic coloured pigments (CICPs) are typically crystals of mixed metal oxides that are produced by a high temperature calcination process. CIPs have a defined crystal structure (e.g. rutile and spinel). The variable combination of metals and structures provide the desired colour to the pigment.
Further support can be found through Eurocolour, a sector group of the European Council of the Chemical industry (CEFIC) and the Inorganic pigments consortium.Eurocolour a sector group of CEFIC has published guidance for the identification of CICPs. Please follow this guidance when you are identifying CICPs.
