Stardust, the French special effects paint manufacturer, expands its already unique collection of 18 « chameleon » colors, with an impressive series of 16 « Extrem » chameleon colors.
What is the difference with the previous range?
First of all, the price, which at first sight seems to be much higher than that of the Standard chameleon paints.
The reason for this price difference? probably, the composition and rarity of the material constituting the chameleon, which does not seem to be made of classic synthetic mica particles, as found everywhere in the world of automotive paint.
Indeed, Extrem colors are made from a magnesium substrate, covered with thin layers of metals deposited by an electrical process.
Very powerful metallic colors, very vivid and saturated in color, compared to conventional « colorshift » paints.
These paints also offer a better coverage.
One can see at first glance the very marked contrast between the color changes: Each Extrem reference shows radical color changes, with 2 to 6 changes, depending on the angle of observation.

Can a chameleon paint be applied in all fields?
Given its total resistance to the sun’s rays, a « colorshift » color is perfectly capable of being exposed outdoors, even at the southernmost latitudes, for decades without seeing its color fade.
In addition to being particularly easy to apply, Chameleon is truly the king of special effect paints, as it is truly a paint that catches the eye, surprises, and intrigues (it does that, in that order)!
The application of these paints is particularly in vogue in the world of bikes, but also in all areas of equipment and design objects.
