Special Effects 1
PEARLY CRACKLE
EFFECT

The pearly crackle effect reflects contemporary design trends with a refined finish that is pleasant to the touch and suited to increasingly sustainable projects. It is innovative for its water-based formula but also for aesthetic aspects: the slight pearly finish together with tone-on-tone coloring enhances the elegance of the surface, making it unique.

CRACKLY
EFFECT

The transparent or pigmented crackly-effect paint is inspired by the luxury interior design style and can be used to create a refined outcome that is at once visually striking and highly elegant. The surface has an irregular crackled appearance, perceptible even to the touch, the extent of which varies in relation to the amount of product applied.

STRINGY
EFFECT

The stringy effect is obtained using a pigmented one-component coating that produces thin filaments resulting in a marble-like effect. The filament is particularly evident when the chosen color contrasts with the one of the underlying base coat.

LIQUIDICE
EFFECT

The LIQUIDICE coating creates an aesthetic effect that resembles ice crystals. It allows for obtaining various pearly or metallic finishes that enhance the texture created by the product, endowing the coated surface with an original three-dimensional effect.

LIQUID-METAL
EFFECT

 

The liquid-metal effect features a special pigment formulation which causes color to be perceived in a full tone as if it were a lacquered coating with a luminescent effect that is more subtle than standard metallic colors. The finish has a pleasant micro-texture feel, for a surface with balanced alternation of covered and empty space, but without adding depth.

MOTHER-OF-PEARL
EFFECT

The coating cycle with mother-of-pearl effect uses a two-component polyurethane coating that produces an effect very similar to mother of pearl. The product is colorless and, therefore, the effect’s final color comes from the underlying coating, with a lighter tone.
