LA Glass Flake GF100LA
LA Glass Flake GF100LA is a Low Alkali Glassflake, or LAG, which has been formulated specifically for use as a pigment substrate, giving the finished product unique effects. Glass flakes, or borosilicates as they are often referred to, are a unique substrate which, unlike natural micas and synthetic micas, have a completely planar and smooth surface. They are also completely transparent, giving rise to effect pigments coated with metal oxides that display high brightness, good color purity, and high chroma. Presently glass flake pigments are used in both cosmetic and industrial applications including automotive coatings.
