Shepherd Color introduces two new special effect pigments "StarLight FX 15” and "StarLight FX 25” which have the form of reflective silver-coated glass flakes. The products show good sparkle and glitter effects, especially in strong sunlight. They are resistant to tarnish and easy to disperse. With the average flake diameter near 15 microns for "FX 15” and 25 microns for "FX 25”, these one-micron thick mirrors are well suited for coatings applications. The pigments provide sparkle and flash effects at relatively low loadings (< 1 %) in non-opaque colour base coats or as additives in clear protective topcoats. They are compatible with most all resins and solvents, moreover in nearly all plastic systems. Their high heat stability (max 500 °C) makes them useful in higher temperature engineering resins.
