Coil Coatings


CENTRIA's Kolorshift is a series of iridescent paint colors designed to change the appearance of the metal surface of a building depending on the viewing angle or direction of sunlight.

By using Kolorshift, a building can be designed where pedestrians first experience it as silver, then purple as they walk by it. While design teams have always employed solar orientation, especially as part of improving a building's performance (i.e. heat loss/gain), now they can also use it to create a building that transforms from green as the sun rises and to copper as the sun sets.

This new line of CENTRIA paints offers a myriad of design possibilities for exterior metal walls. The continuous iridescent color gradient creates depth to the exterior of a building and adds distinguished aesthetic value-all with the exceptional performance expected from CENTRIA's products.

Kolorshift Series paints are formulated as a polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) coating system with 70 percent Kynar 500/Hylar 5000 resins, which provide lasting durability. The Kolorshift paints are applied by coil coating in order to provide consistent color and available with a standard 20-year warranty.
