Why is color so important?

Color conveys emotion. Color sells products and services. Color inspires everything. Color evolves.

It is human to be attracted to color. It is also human to expect tastes in color to evolve. When that happens, new trends form. And who better than the people who live, breathe and coat the world with every color in extistence to inform you of these trends?

Special Effects

Special Effects can help your projects enchant, impress, and even dazzle. Serious architectural design once meant a limited color palette. But thanks to Sherwin-Williams Coil Coatings innovative Special Effects line, you can now access an entirely new color space.

Dynamic, eye-catching gold or silver sparkle in nearly any color you can imagine. In the past, adding sparkle meant sacrificing color integrity. Special Effects Nova changes all that. Fluropon Effects Nova is available in our coil and extrusion coating line, listed under Pearlescent/Effect family.

A soothing, nature-inspired palette that showcases natural polychromatic colors with a weathered, antique look. Rustica provides a calming invitation to richer, more saturated colors, including some with a subtle color-shift. Fluropon Effects Rustica is available in our coil and extrusion coating line, listed under Pearlescent/Effect family.

An iridescent, multi-toned effect that moves architectural coatings into a new level of color. Kameleon’s color family features a wide spectrum of intense vibrant colors that appear to shift from one color to another depending on the angle or light. The shift can be dramatic or subtle. If you’re using our Valflon coatings, you can achieve similarly impressive color-shifts using our Prismatic pigments. Fluropon Effects Kameleon is available in our coil and extrusion coating line, listed under Pearlescent/Effect family.

A distinctive multi-layered effect. Creates unique color combinations by using a solid base coat and layers of ink that complement the building materials—slate, corten steel, wood grain and so much more. Opens up unlimited possibilities. Contact a coil color expert today to learn more.

Vibrancy, taken to a whole new level. When you want a pearlescent appearance, our two-coat metallic coatings have a directional appearance that adds new dimension. For an additional special effect, our micas add a shine and protection, making our three-coat system sparkle.
