Attach flair and style to ordinary design creations
Anodized effects are formulated to emulate anodized finishes. They are suitable for aluminum extrusions, cast pieces and other ferrous non-ferrous substrates.
Pearlescent finishes offer reflective metallic values reminiscent of natural pearls. They provide luster and shine and transform objects into that something special.
Dormant transparent are flamboyant finishes obtained through the application of two coats. The effect will only evolve after the application of a clear top coat over a specially-formulated opaque powder coating.
Glitter finishes contain sparkling metallic flakes suspended in a clear coat. They can be applied over any base coat color, providing a high range of effects by just changing the base coat color. They are formulated in gold and silver effects. They provide multiple-color sparkles to add delight and cheerfulness to any color. The variety called Twilight (TIGER Drylac® 49/00390) provides multi-color sparkles to add delight and cheerfulness to any color.
Holographic finishes provide an ever changing color travel (or flip flop effect). They are formulated as transparent finishes with multicolored holographic pigments or as non-transparent finishes with holographic effects. They add mystery and reveal fascinating effects depending on the view angle.
Iron glimmer are smooth and fine textured finishes for exterior applications. They provide a metallic look but contain little or no metallic pigments. They are ideal for one-coat finish solutions.
Antique (vein) are textured metallic finishes that add visual dimensional layers to objects that otherwise show no character. They also hide uneven surfaces and are easy to maintain.
For a proper application of Stellix 2nd generation bonded metallic powder coatings, it is recommended to carefully read the ‘Guidelines for Application of Metallic Powder Coatings’ and adhere to its contents.
