ICE PEARL PIGMENT – SPARKLE ICE RED
Ice pearl pigments, also known as glass flakes, are a type of colourant used in paints, coatings, and other applications to create a unique and highly reflective surface. Ice pearl is a type of glass that contains boron trioxide, which gives it a unique set of properties including high strength, durability, and resistance to thermal shock however maybe more importantly is that they offer an unrivalled diamond like sparkle unique to this type of pigment.
Ice pearl pigments are made by melting glass rods or tubes and then crushing the resulting glass into small flakes or particles. The flakes are then coated with a thin layer of metal or other material to create a reflective surface. The size and shape of the flakes can vary depending on the desired effect, but they are typically very thin and lightweight, with a thickness of only a few microns.
When Ice pearl pigments are added to paint or coating, they create a unique reflective effect that can appear to change colour depending on the angle and intensity of the light. This effect is sometimes called a “flip-flop” effect, and it can create a striking and dramatic appearance on a variety of surfaces, including automotive finishes, decorative coatings.
Ice pearl pigments are available in a range of colours and sizes and can be combined with other pigments and colorants to create custom shades and effects. They are often used in high-end or specialty applications, such as custom car painting, luxury yacht finishes, and high-performance coatings for aerospace and military applications. One of the key benefits of Ice pearl pigments is their durability and resistance to weathering and UV radiation. They are also highly resistant to chemical and thermal damage, making them suitable for use in harsh environments.
