These pigments or stainers are made of natural earth-based resources and oxides and are not only highly concentrated but you can also use it for almost any paint and plaster on the decorating market. These water-based colourants can be added to synthetic and washable paints, plastic coatings, silicate and lime-based paints, plasters and renders, oil-base enamels and synthetic undercoats, beside water-base undercoats for indoor and outdoor use. You can even use these pigments for our microcement.
Although we recommend that you choose the colour of the paint or plaster directly on the respective page as we can not predict how they’ll change the colour of the finish, you can be sure that these pigments have an extremely high colouring power and can be used for any product offered by Impera Italia.
The colour resistance of these pigments is either significantly above average or excellent due to the fact that they are earth and oxide-based, natural colourants.
