Developed by New Zealand Steel to provide a unique architectural solution, COLORSTEEL® Metallic pre-painted steel creates an amazing effect according to varied lighting conditions and view angles. As light gently washes over the mica particles in the metallic finish, a unique perception of depth is acquired.
The metallic type paint systems obtain their unique lustre from the addition of mic particles to the paint. These particles, while being responsible for the unique appearance, also result in a visual effect know as a geometric metamerism. Geometric metamerism is a phenomenon where the colour of the painted surface will appear to be different dependent on viewing angles and lighting conditions.
