Color Shifting pink-pearl Cadillac
April 12, 2007
Visualise a car that fades stylishly from pink to pearly white as it cruises by. Color shifting pigments aren’t breakthrough technology.
You can get a colour to glisten in different colours by adding extra layers of coating embedded with tiny multicoloured metallic flakes. You cover your base colour coat with a second translucent layer of a different colour or a colour which contains within it flecks of aluminium which is a different colour or combination.
At the extreme of colour shifting paints are the ChromaFlair colours created by JDS Uniphase (Charts). The pigments use colourless flakes which refract light creating colours.
