Product overview

Rigel(RIG)Ink is a screen printing ink containing powders that emit colors due to the interference effect of light, and can form colored ink layers with high brilliance and a glittering effect. The powder is randomly oriented and the powder itself is smooth, and because of the coloration caused by the interference effect, high brilliance can be obtained in a wide range of areas.


  • Decoration for automobile, home appliances, packages and outdoor related.
