Their high level of transparency gives the Colorstream® and Xirona® multicolor effect pigments enormous styling potential while equally allowing subtle and strong color shifts. Their carrier material is synthetically produced silicon dioxide (SiO2). Coated with highly refractive metal oxides, the wafer-thin and smooth platelets reflect the light generating extraordinary changing interference colors.
