BASF’s has a new polychromatic paint for the coil coatings market. Vari-Cool is a fluoropolymer (PVDF), factory-applied, pearlescent coating system created on the foundation of Kynar 500 or Hylar 5000 resin. Vari-cool utilizes effect pigments made from silicon dioxide platelets that are specially coated with metal oxides, a process that allows the colors to change subtly depending on the viewing angle and on how light refracts across a particular area, according to the company. BASF offers 17 standard “colors in motion” in six different color groupings.
