The article discusses effect pigments that exhibit special effects to substrates to enhance its quality and make it attractive to consumers. It mentions types of pigments depending on nature of the substrate used including polymer stacks, mirror in which colour effect is observed due to the reflection of light and metal salt stacks. It adds factors that drive demand of effect pigments comprising increasing demand for enhanced visual colours and angle dependent colour effect by the consumers.
