REFLECTIVITY OF GREEN FERRO PIGMENT COMPARED WITH A CHLOROPHYLL CURVE

Camouflage Pigments Specs
Our pigments show the same Visible and NIR reflectance as the surrounding areas where they are used, making objects become undetectable by visible light and NIR detection equipment. 

Camouflage pigments obtain their properties based on an accurate selection of the right pigments and careful production processes that ensure the right visible light  and NIR reflectance properties.

The green Ferro pigment shows an enhanced reflectivity of 50% in the NIR range.

VALUE ADDED SERVICES

Advanced Color Matching
Ferro technicians combine their talents with today's most advanced computer color analysis equipment to offer our customers precise color-matching services. Our spectrophotometry process minimizes metamerism, speeds up color matching, ensures consistent quality and helps identify the pigment combination that produces any given color for the lowest possible cost and right performance characteristics, including outdoor durability and NIR reflectance.

Ferro can match your color chip/drawdown or we can refer to complete files of OSHA, Munsel, RAL, Federal Standard 595 Series or Pantone® matching systems to achieve your reference number. All of our colors are matched to Ferro standards or your reference sample, ensuring precise color reproduction from order to order.
