Discover Xirona® Caribbean Blue

Xirona® Caribbean Blue, an interference effect that recalls the iridescent shades of the ocean’s surface. Its turquoise color changes under a perpendicular view as the oblique viewing angle reveals blue and violet. These cool, refreshing shades are based on mica and veiled in layers of tin oxide, silicon and titanium dioxide. The pigment’s particle size distribution from 10 to 60μm creates an appealing, aquatic shimmering effect.

To highlight the interference color effects of the pigment, we recommend combining Xirona® Caribbean Blue with colorants that are not part of its own color circle. These could be red, orange, yellow, gold, copper, and/or a hint of black (e.g. Colorona® Mica Black). Darken the background with the before mentioned and display up to four colors in one.
