About Us

The Glassflake Ltd groups of companies are pioneers in the glass flake industry, being the first to produce flakes using spinning technology. With a history of innovation and product development Glassflake Ltd produce unique materials not available elsewhere in a thickness range from 7 microns to 100 nanometers. Through our network of production and sales facilities we serve industry globally.

Glassflake Ltd developed their proprietary technology in the early eighties with the aim of producing thinner and more consistent glass flakes. In 1999 Glassflake Ltd introduced a novel substrate, a flake with a true thickness of 1 micron to the effect pigments market; prior to this all glass flakes produced were thick and widely variable in thickness producing crude pigments unusable for many applications. Initially supplying the major pigment companies with this novel substrate it has now become the global leader used by many companies. Today Glassflake Ltd also produce their own effect pigments with novel coatings providing unique effects.

Glassflake Ltd continue to develop novel pigment products on the foundation of their unrivalled knowledge and know-how in glass flake production.
