Fall in love

A chilly wind dances with the trees and shakes them to the core. Splendidly colored leaves drop one by one.

Sit with us by the campfire and observe the beauty nature has to offer with our new effect pigment formulation of the month “Fall in Love” that announces the beginning of fall.

The PWC (Pigment Weight Concentration) in the dry film is indicated for each styling

PWC = p / (p + b)

p = total weight pigments (solid)

b = weight binder (solid)

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.
