Easy to Use

LUMIRO™ dispersions are carefully formulated to provide trouble-free use. The pigments will fully disperse for maximum tinting strength and full chroma.

Quality Best Practices

LUMIRO™’s adherence to product quality begins in the early stages of research and development and continues through to production and final inspection. Our quality control experts meet and exceed standards for custom product specifications.

What is LUMIRO™?

LUMIRO™ is NAGASE Specialty Materials' signature colorant line made for the demanding, high-performance environments found in architectural and industrial coatings applications. 

We create standard and custom color pigment dispersions for tinting both water and solvent-based systems.

Derived from the words light (lum) and color (iro in Japanese), LUMIRO’s innovative coatings are all around us: in paints, adhesives, inks, urethanes, and sealant markets. Through NAGASE Groups' laboratory and research facilities, there are nearly unlimited opportunities to customize color pigment dispersions.

LUMIRO™ is made from the highest quality raw materials resulting in an unparalleled user experience. Plus, the ISO-certified facilities and quality control specialists ensure product performance and vibrant color consistency.
