Pigments are materials that reflect certain spectrums of light to produce particular colours. Pigments can be inorganic such as titanium dioxide, calcium carbonate, chromium sulphate, manganese dioxide, or organic such as phloroscein, copper phthalocyanine or others. Pigments have different solubility in liquids: organic pigments are usually soluble in water but not in fatty liquids, but there are exceptions, inorganic pigments are usually completely insoluble or very slightly soluble in water, and only when properly distributed will they give a beautiful colour.

The most popular pigments are pearlescent pigments. The result is a stunning matt-gloss colour.
Pearl pigments are inorganic, so they are insoluble in water and are only distributed in the paint base. The advantage of these pigments is that they are durable and not afraid of outdoor conditions.
Inorganic pigments are insoluble and do not react with other materials, making them safe to use. Organic pigments, although not labelled as hazardous, need to be protected to prevent large quantities from entering runoff waters.
