TECHNICAL DATA - WATER AND SOLVENT RESISTANT
ZARINEX Glitter is especially designed to meet the requirements of manufacturers
of decorated fabrics, adhesives, vinyl sheeting, plastic molding, inks, paints,
and many other products which require glitter of outstanding physical and chemical
We are pleased to list below some of the extensive tests ZARINEX has been
Although ZARINEX has endured exposure to 350 degree Fahrenheit with no apparent
loss of color or reflective quality, the actual limit of resistance is dependent
upon dwell time, mixing abrasion, and ambient process temperature.
Because ZARINEX has a significantly lower specific gravity than most liquid
or gel mediums where it is incorporated, it will remain in suspension more
uniformly during process application.
ZARINEX has proved highly resistant to most commonly used commercial solvents
such as painter's naptha. ZARINEX glitter can be used in most solvent, acrylic,
vinyl and aqueous systems. Test before use.
1. Each chip of glitter has a minute edge of exposed aluminium created when
the particle is cut from the sheet. Therefore, caustics and all chemicals normally
affecting pure aluminium could react with this exposed edge. This does not
preclude use of this glitter with these chemicals, however, since, the short
duration of most industrial processes may not afford enough time to cause significant
damage to the finished product. It is advised that contact be checked before
2. Concentrated sulfuric acid will cause separation of the coating from the
3. ZARINEX should be experience tested prior to application.
The coatings used to produce ZARINEX are formulated, applied and thermo set
to create a superb coating strength with excellent adhesion to film.Standard
tests applied to the coated foil are: Cellophane tape strip test, 180 fold
and crease test, and wrinkle test. Under all of these examinations, no separations
occurred between the coating and the foil.
In addition to excellent adherence of the coating to the foil, it is equally
important that the colors are resistant to migration or bleeding into surrounding
medium. Because the finest available transparent pigments are used, the colors
are highly resistant to migration.
A beautiful spectrum of brilliant colors is available in ZARINEX. Samples
are available on request.
ZARINEX is a coated aluminum moralized polyethylene Tetra phthalate, and is
formulated to be Non-Toxic.
ZARINEX undergoes thorough quality control in all stages of production. The
vacuum moralized polyester film and coating are checked for gauge, brightness,
color match, solvent resistance and coating adherence.
The glitter is then precision cut on specially developed high-speed machines
with extreme accuracy. Size and shape of the glitter is checked at frequent
intervals. After cutting, the glitter is carefully sifted through screens,
two or more times to remove any oversized or unrepeated pieces.
Note: The above information is given for guidance only and is based on scientific
For the average person, not a day goes by without seeing glitter in one form
or another. Many paints, plastics, boats, bicycles, signs and other objects
too numerous to mention use glitter to make them more appealing. If you are
a fisherman, many of your lures probably contain glitters to catch fish.
ALLURE OF GLITTER
Glitter, like so many other eye-catching and visually/objects, involves
a subtle ever-changing motion.
The visual allure of a crackling campfire or a burbling brook exhibits
a variable in-place motion that is different from the inanimate objects
we humans normally experience. Our senses are drawn toward motion.
The apparent motion of glitter is due to its ever changing sparkle which
occurs with the slightest eye, body or object movement. Like a fine cut
diamond, an imperceptible change in the viewing angle results in a different
visual picture, and a myriad of ever-changing reflections captures our
Just as no photograph of a diamond could ever truly represent its beauty,
glitter must be experienced in the real world to be appreciated.
We know that all glitter is not created equal, however, and we do know
what it takes to produce the best material, with optimized reflections?
and color purity.
Unlike a lot of glitter in the market today, ZARINEX material is precision
cut on state of the art equipment to optimize visual effects, and our
reflective coating and colors are carefully engineered to yield maximum
color purity and intensity.
It is easy to find manufacturers producing glitters from .01 thick films
about 200 G image in 50 mil,
but we are the only one making ZARINEX in the following thicknesses.
Microns = 2 MILS or 0.002” = 200 gauge
25 Microns = 1 MILS or 0.001” = 92 gauge
Microns = ½ MILS or 0.0005” = 48 gauge
There are many more particles in a thin film per kilo in comparison to
a thicker film. So when you use ZARINEX you get a lot more per kilo because
you get a lot more fine particles of ZARINEX in a kilo compared to other
thicker glitters available in the market. Use ZARINEX to save money
