Paint is paramagnetic - a myth or reality
For car lovers, everything matters - brand, equipment, saloon equipment and body color. The bike that the car can be any color, if only the color was black, already few people are satisfied. The development of technology makes it possible to change the shade of the car depending on certain conditions, and the latest development - a paramagnetic paint, inspires hope for a miracle.
Paint paramagnetic is the development of American scientists. Before the car body is covered with a layer of super-paint, it is prepared. At this stage, the car is covered with a polymer composition with certain properties. The polymer composition is made with the inclusion of paramagnetic particles of iron oxide. The effect of electric current changes the distance between the iron particles inside the polymer. Thus, the light-reflecting surface of the top layer of auto-enamel that translates all colors of the spectrum visible to man changes. Any color is reproduced, but the effect is only visible when the engine is on. A non-working car has a popular "base" white color. The transition from one color to another takes place in one click of the remote control. The creators of paint claim that any color has depth, saturation and glossy luster.

Myth or Reality
When paramagnetic paint appears in the public domain, it is still unknown. In occasion of its existence there are heated debates among motorists and professionals. Many argue that the videos that demonstrate the wonders of the new technology for rapid color change - just filigree work of designers and graphic computer applications. At least, the paramagnetic paint is not yet produced by the hands, which indicates the lack of information and lack of access to an authentic product. On the cost of the material, too, nothing is known, although those who want not to stint on the upgrade of their own car is enough. That is why, other, tested variants of coloring paints are offered.
Auto-enamels that change color are divided into three groups:
- Paint is paramagnetic.
Thermo-enamels. This type of body coating changes color depending on the temperature of the environment. Base colors are yellow, black, two shades of red, two shades of blue, green, purple. The basis, changing color depending on the temperature, are microscopic liquid crystals - leuco dyes. They are colorless, heat-sensitive, change color as the temperature reaches certain indicators that can be set. Body painting is carried out with a spray gun, but it falls well with the use of simpler tools - roller, brush, sponge. Thermo-enamel is not toxic, has good covering qualities, high aesthetic effects. Applying several layers of auto enamel allows you to get fascinating color overflows, and using several basic colors or drawing a picture on the car will make it creative. Negative qualities: high cost of enamel, damage to paint in one place entails the need to paint the entire body, is afraid of direct ultraviolet rays, difficulty with registration.
Hydro-enamels. Color coating changes color when it hits the surface of moisture. The effect is the ability of the paint to become transparent when wet. In normal condition, the car covered with hydro-enamel is white. To get an exclusive color, the craftsmen offer options for partial body covering, making the bottom layer multicolor. In rainy weather, the car takes on a completely fantastic appearance when the previously unseen decor appears on the surface of the car. The disadvantages are: high cost, lack of variety of base colors, extensive preparatory work.
Paint is paramagnetic. A novelty in the market of auto enamels. Has the highest cost and is still rare in our latitudes. The claimed qualities of this variant of auto enamel cause the hearts of motorists to fight faster and look forward to the spread of the novelty in order to gain access to the dream.
