Charcoal Beauty

Charcoal appears matt and lifeless. It´s pure carbon that eats the beautiful rays of sunlight. What else can bring life and sparkle to such an otherwise dull surface, if not our brand new Xirallic® NXT Amur Black? It is the complex and novel combination of the black shimmer of the surface, the endless motion of the Living Sparkle®, the chromatically stable depth of color, the harmonious transitions and the highly reflective gleam that makes this pigment ideal for dark hues, giving them an enviable elegance and lightness.

In the dry state: Pigment / binder ratio = (Σ Pigment) / (Total solid content (wet form) – (Σ Pigment)) 

Feasibility for on-line application

The stylings in our color inspirations are intended to demonstrate future effect color directions and possibilities. Although we have tried to make the formulations as realistic as possible, we cannot guarantee their full feasibility for on-line application. A certain degree of modification and fine tuning will probably be necessary.
