This is a paint that mimics metals with a chrome finish. This is achieved by with a leafing effect.
Leafing pigments work by floating in the paint film and are oriented horizontally to its surface. Thanks to this formula, they create the impression of a chromed surface with high reflection.
This nature of the paint means that it is not suitable for outdoor use or in circumstances where the painted object will be touched, since the effect will disappear.
For the same reason, it cannot be varnished. If you do so, it will lose its chrome effect and you will end up with a matt metallic paint finish.
Therefore, this paint is to be used indoors exclusively for decorative use.
If you require a metallic that can be touched we would recommend the MTN Pro Metallic range.
