Metals are omnipresent in our daily lives: packaging, automotive paints, decorative inks, metallized plastic accessories, consumer electronics or cosmetics, to name but a few uses.
However, the extraction and machining of metals have a major ecological and societal impact, not to mention an industrial implementation that adds to the ecological bill by using energy-intensive metallization processes.
Our ambition is to promote a real paradigm shift in this field, thanks to a disruptive technology that is both low-cost and eco-friendly.
Originating in academic research, the technology we are developing uses new generation pigments, totally organic, that allow us to reproduce the metallic appearance: for a metallic shine without metal!
AURESSENS offers an alternative to metal, precious or not, in decorative and technological applications where its appearance or optical properties are essential.
Our ambition is to provide innovative, easy-to-use and competitive solutions to help you de-metallate your processes and thus offer your own customers an ethical and ecological alternative to the metallization methods currently used.
The disruptive technology developed by AURESSENS represents a real paradigm shift. It is based on innovative metal-free "effect" pigments, that have been the subject of several patent applications.
The solutions offered by AURESSENS are designed to minimize their environmental impact from one end of the value chain to the other: from the production of pigments to their formulation and implementation.
The ease of implementation of the AURESSENS technology combined with the know-how of its R&D team allows us to provide solutions that are easy to implement in the production chain of our clients
The versatility of the technology allows access to a wide range of optical effects (mirror, glitter, dichroic, iridescent) including a color chart with a metallic appearance.
Thanks to its expertise in the technology, our R&D team is able to propose customized and made in France solutions that best meet our customers' specifications.
As AURESSENS coatings are completely metal-free, they have the advantage of being lightweight, while being economically affordable and ethically acceptable.
