Colorstream® multicolor effect pigments from EMD Performance Materials add a new dimension to the colors of coatings. They change color with the angle of observation, allowing innovative shades and new designs with that extra something.
Sophisticated color play
The secret of colors with Colorstream® is their sophistication – the members of this product family redefine the term 'effect pigments'. Depending on the angles of observation and illumination, they display unique, sophisticated color interplay with a multitude of nuances flowing into each other. They even develop attractive color shifts in subdued lighting.
High transparency for color shifts from subtle to strong
Their high level of transparency gives the multicolor effect pigments enormous styling potential while equally allowing subtle and strong color shifts. Their carrier material is synthetically produced silicon dioxide (SiO2). Coated with highly refractive metal oxides, the wafer-thin and smooth platelets reflect the light into extraordinary changing interference colors.
Surprising effects inside and out
Colorstream® is suitable for a large number of coating applications, such as industrial and plastic coatings, powder and leather coatings, and dispersion paints. With weatherproof coating, it gives automobile coatings a special something and displays its surprising color play in architectural applications.
Thanks to its high transparency, the Colorstream® product series can be combined with other organic and inorganic colorings – for a wide variety of styling options with effective color shifts. Combinations with EMD Performance Materials effect pigments from the Pyrisma®, Iriodin® and Xirallic® families are of particular interest.
Colorstream® also gives fascinating color shifts to plastics and print products.
