About this pressentation

Glassflake has been available as a material since the 1950s, with traditional uses found in the industrial and heavy duty coatings in severe environments. While the demand for glassflake in these markets remains, significant advances have been made in manufacturing technology, leading to increased product experience and knowledge. With a far wider range of glassflake possibilities now available, the range of coatings, polymers and engineered materials that can benefit from glassflake continues to grow. This presentation provides an overview of glassflake as a functional and decorative material, manufacturing process technology and key benefits that can be exploited for a diverse range of high performance applications.
