HOW PRIZMALITE MICROSPHERES WORK

OPTICALLY

PRIZMALITE CLEAR GLASS MICROSPHERES

  • Act as mini-magnifying glasses to deliver visually truer color
  • Clarify and magnify the visual impact of pigments and metallic flakes
  • Create a richer, wetter, deeper look
  • Visually extend expensive color-shift pigments to create cost-effective new looks

GEOMETRICALLY

ALL PRIZMALITE GLASS MICROSPHERES

  • Prop up other pigments, mica and aluminum flakes
  • Increase exposed surface area and visual impact
  • Facilitate even dispersion of colorants and reflectors
  • Are anti-mottling agents that enhance visual consistency
  • Act as mini-ball bearings to improve material flow and reduce flow lines
  • Provide color consistency from all viewing angles

FUNCTIONALLY

ALL PRIZMALITE GLASS MICROSPHERES

  • Impart durability and chip resistance due to the hardness of glass
  • Reduce cost when substituted for more expensive pigments
  • Facilitate the matching of colors from substrateto- substrate and part-to-part
  • Lower the cost of application through defect reduction and process acceleration

VISUALLY

PRIZMALITE ALUMINUM-COATED SPHERES

  • Retro reflect light straight back to the light source for night visibility
  • Combine with colored spheres for a color flexible reflectivity
  • Provide omni-angle reflectivity for a wider range of visibility
  • Make coated objects visible at night in headlights up to 300 meters away
