It is brownish orange with dark stripes resembling tiger stripes, hence its name. The color darkens over time to a deeper orange color, especially when exposed to sunlight. The use of a UV Inhibitor will prolong this rich color. Or, for those that like the silver-grey patina color, you can forgo this process and let it age naturally while still maintaining its integrity.
