Functional. sporting, elegant: the new special-effect shade "Alushine" from Standox, Wuppertal, is entirelu in keeping with today's spirit. The silver-coloured waterborne metallic finish stands out above all through its surprising surface appearance: the painted body looks as if it has just emerged from a bath of aluminium - with not a trace of pigment or glitter to be seen.
Developed for complete resprays, "Alushine" is the first water-thinnable product to feature optical properties similar to those of aluminium. "Alushine" can also be impressively varied: depending on the type of clearcoat used, various fascinating effects can be produced - from shining aluminium through silky silver to satiny platinum.
Standox presented its new special-effect tone at the Press Conference in Cologne in September. At present, "Alushine" is exclusively available to authorised and specially trained Standox refinishers whose professional expertise ensures a top-quality refinish meeting the highest standards. The new product's market launch is being supported by a comprehensive package of sales promotion activities.
