Recently, Mica Ghost Pearl and Candy and Chameleon Iron Oxide pigments have become popular.

Mica is a mineral with colors like silver, black, green, and pink. It’s used in cosmetics, paints, and plastics because it reflects light and adds shimmer. Iron oxide pigments are natural and synthetic compounds used for coloring various materials, including surfboards.

When Candy, Ghost, and Chameleon pigments are combined, they create stunning visual effects on surfboards. Ghost Pearls add a pearlescent shine, while Candy Pearl pigments create rich colors. Mixing these pigments can result in a captivating look that catches the eye on land and in the water.

Surfboard makers use these pigments in different ways. One method involves mixing them into the resin coating, creating a translucent layer with shimmer from the mica and a colored tint from the iron oxide pigments. Another technique is adding pigments to the foam used for shaping, resulting in a solid color with a subtle shimmer, ideal for boards meant for painting.

These pigments offer practical benefits too. Mica reduces the board’s weight, and iron oxide pigments are durable and resist fading, keeping the board looking great over time.
