Shimrin2® is the 2nd generation of the proven Shimrin® Basecoat technology introduced in 1982. Shimrin2® is the next generation of robust ground-breaking universal basecoats from House of Kolor. Through new polymers and innovative chemistry we are able to meet and exceed waterborne with a solvent based system and allow you the painter to create hundreds of easy to mix and use kolors that are the most exciting, from the latest pearl technology. Shimrin2® basecoats are ultra productive, easy to apply, and range from Metallic Basecoats (BC), Pearl Basecoats (PBC), and Kandy Basecoats (KBC). Shimrin2® Basecoats are a three component system that consists of our S2 FX Karrier Bases, S2-FX Effect Pacs and RU Series Kosmic reducers.
FX KARRIER BASE

This diverse component of the S2 FX Karrier Base Series is used to create straight effects with no pigment, KBC Kandy Basecoats, tri-stage coats, and much more. Colour styling is a breeze with S2 FX Karrier Bases S2-01 through S2-16.
