Color your world. The Cary Company offers a variety of pigments for use in paint and coatings, ink, and plastic. Pigments are finely ground natural or synthetic insoluble particles added to paints and coatings to create color, bulk or a preferred physical property. Pigments can be organic, inorganic, functional or special effect. Organic pigments do not disperse easily and form clumps of particles. Inorganic pigments are more easily dispersed. Functional fillers impart a desired property to the coating. Special effect pigments create unique finishes such as metallic. Our pigments come in a variety of colors and finishes.
