Color Travel Pigments

Two different technologies have recently  been developed to produce the exciting new effect shown by color travel pigments carrying the brand name Xirona.

One form has been produced by coating synthetically produced silica flakes with metal oxides such as titanium dioxide or iron oxide. The silica flakes have their own interference color, which is determined by their thickness. For the creation of color effects, two variables can be used. First, the thickness of the silica flakes and secondly, the thickness of the metal oxide layers. Both can be precisely controlled and so by combinations of layers with varying thickness many different colors and effects can be achieved. The result is that the color of a Xirona pigment will change depending on the angle from which it is viewed.

The other technology is multi layer on a mica substrate. If a SiO2 layer with low refractivity and a second highly reflective layer of TiO2 are correctly applied, these layers increase the reflection intensity of each platelet by approx. 90 %. In addition, appropriate layer thickness leads to interference systems with highly angle dependent colors; hence the color of the pigment will change depending on the viewing angle.

The Xirona Color Travel pigments may be used in all cosmetic products, in combination with traditional pearl luster pigments as well as both organic and inorganic colors. They disperse well in both oil and water.

To achieve the best visible color travel use almost transparent, translucent and semi opaque base formulations together with transparent round , concave or vaulted packaging.

This new range contains six pigments under the brand name Xirona. Formulations containing Xirona pigments you will find here.

Xirona Caribbean Blue (10-3)

Xirona Caribbean Blue
The first color travel pigment type based on a new technology. It consists of mica, layered with titanium dioxide and silica. The color changes from turquoise under perpendicular view to blue to violet under oblique view.
 

001
Xirona Indian Summer (10-7)

Xirona Indian Summer
A very attractive pearl pigment with high coverage creating intense metallic shades with red-gold to bronze to green-gold color travel. The stunning color travel effect is achieved using our patented technology of synthetically manufactured silica flakes, coated with rutile titanium dioxide.

002
Xirona Silver (8-8) 003
Xirona Nordic Sunset (9-4)

Xirona Nordic Sunset
It shows a beautiful display of colors from silver-green under perpendicular view, through silver-red to green-gold under oblique view. The observed color depends on the direction of the light and the viewing angles.

004
Xirona Volcanic Fire (9-8)Xirona Volcanic Fire
It displays a color travel from red to copper to gold with a green hint. Based on our ex-clusive multilayer mica tech-nology (comparable to that used for Xirona Carribean Blue), it combines strong bril-liance and high chroma of the interference effect with this distinctive color change, de-pending on the viewing angle.

 

005
Xirona Kiwi Rose (10-4)Xirona Kiwi Rose
It provides a brilliant strong color travel from green to silver to peach. The stunning color travel effect is achieved using our patented technology of synthetically manufactured silica flakes, coated with rutile titanium dioxide.
 

 

006
Xirona Magic Mauve (10-8)

Xirona Magic Mauve
A highly transparent, very attractive interference pigment best suited to create silvery pastel shades with lilac-red to silver to green-blue color travel. The stunning color travel effect is achieved using our patented technology of synthetically manufactured silica flakes, coated with rutile titanium dioxide.
