Glassflake

Glassflake produces glass flake materials in a range of nominal flake thicknesses, particle sizes, chemical compositions and surface treatments to meet all application requirements. Glass flakes have high aspect ratio glass flakes in comparison to fibers or granular fillers. They are often used as a coating for corrosion protection and to improve coating properties in such areas like chemical resistance, while also providing high abrasion resistance for extended use. Glass flake coating systems have low permeation (due to platelets within the coating film), whereas aligned flakes improve permeation. Our materials are infinitely versatile, with inherent mechanical, chemical and visual properties that make a significant contribution to a diverse range of products, processes and industries worldwide.
  • The ECR glass type utilised in ECR Glassflake imparts improved reinforcement of chemical and corrosion resistance properties and has been originally formulated for the coatings market. By providing great protection, it has high tensile strength. Presently, a comprehensive range of ECR Glassflake is suitable for most industrial applications. The thickness of the flake ranges from 1 micron to 7 microns. ECR Glassflake is available in 3 particle size distributions - Unmilled, Milled and Micronised.

  • C-Type Glassflake's economical single specification fulfills requirements of and benefits various applications, excluding the extra costs associated with the addition of higher specification flakes. The manufacturing process utilised for the production of this flake is traditional and more cost efficient than the spun-glass method. C glass flake acts as a chemical resistance barrier and also works to resist moisture and improve the reinforcement of mechanical properties. It is commonly referred to as the standard glass flake found in coatings. Although the thickness specification produced by the traditional method is wider, it is on par with many other glass flake products presented on the market.

  • E Glassflake is manufactured from Electric type of glass which is specifically formulated for use in certain polymer systems. Its higher di-electric strength in comparison to standard glass makes E glass more favourable for specific applications. This glass flake is used for polymer reinforcement for non-surface treatment and helps to decrease shrinkage, water absorption, and improve dimensional stability. E Glassflake is used in electrical, automotive, and computer parts.

  • AgFlake glass flakes are thin borosilicate platelets encapsulated in silver. This glass flake is used for functional purposes as a conductive filler. In contrast to equivalent pure metal fillers, AgFlake is lightweight, and high conductivity can be achieved at low loadings. Additionally, AgFlake may be used for decorative purposes imparting striking visual effects.
