About Us

The International Color Alliance (ICA)

...was formed to meet the growth demand for global color solutions. The alliance strength was developed by a global pigment palette, technical exchange of processing and formulation know-how and a global color nomenclature for color formulations.

Worldwide Alliance

The ICA offers customers the possibility of sourcing tailor-made products under the same name and formulation in many countries around the world. The partners' specific knowledge of their local markets, together with the ICA's global strategy, offers customers the ideal platform to achieve a uniform product standard throughout Europe, the Americas, Asia and Africa.
