Glass Flake

PROPERTIES

  • C-glass platelet of about 5µm thick and 10~4,000µm wide
  • Extends life of protective coating : dispersed through the coating, prevents the ingress of water vapour and chemical solutions
  • Prevents cracking and peeling : provides a thermal stabilization layer in the protective coating
  • Improves wear resistance : increases hardness of epoxy and polyester resin coatings
  • Improves chemical resistance: Borosilicate C-glass makes good resistance to chemical attacks, compared to other types of glass

Microglas® Glasflake is ideal for use in vinyl ester, epoxy, acrylic paints and acrylic coatings as a barrier against corrosive attacks by chemicals and moisture.
