They are sometimes called "mother-of-pearl" or dichroic effects, the paints in the "OPAL" range are part of the color changing effects. It is a range of opalescent paint that is unlike any other type of paint, firstly because it is colorless and, depending on the angle and the light, produces opalescent reflections, which resemble the colors of certain shells.
The range consists of 6 iridescent colorless colors, made up of extremely fine mother-of-pearl and creating reflections in 2, 3 or even 4 shades. Recently, 5 new references named QUASAR have been introduced. These are exceptional colors, with stronger and more iridescent colors, as well as more radical color changes.
The colors are varied (from gold, including pink, orange, green, to blue or purple) and are made up, not of pigments, but of pure light.
The effects are almost invisible in the absence of direct light.
These pearly white products, capable of reflecting light in multi-colored iridescent waves in the manner of certain minerals (semi-precious stones) or certain shells, are made up of synthetic elements. They are extremely resistant to temperature, UV, light, bad weather...
The field of use is wide, and their magnificent visual effects open the way to new and original creations for car bodies, perfume or alcohol bottles, design objects, surfaces or household appliances.
Stardust® therefore offers 11 opalescent colors (a series of 5 standard and 6 Quasar), in the form of solvent or water-based paints, which are very easy to apply (by spraying).
The opalescent paint is applied over a light background: preferably white, but you can of course use the background color of your choice. Dichroic opalescent paints can be applied for example on a grey, sky blue, pink background... or any shade of pastel or brighter colours.
These rare, amazing and beautiful paints can be applied directly to a translucent surface, such as the glass of a bottle or plastic, without the need for a white background.
All you need to do is follow the application method by applying a transparent adhesion primer for glass or plastic as a first step (see Stardust specific primers).
The word "dichroic" means that the surface of the paint has the ability to defragment light into several waves of color. This technology has mainly visual interests. It brings a real innovation both in terms of aesthetics and in terms of light reflection and protection of the support. For example, we could imagine an application on aluminium plates to be placed on high-rise buildings, which would produce buildings changing colors and whose facade would have a very long durability.Minimize
