Borosilicate effect pigments play an increasingly important role in industrial applications as unique colouring agents. The interesting effects used alone or in combination with other colourants inspires designers of polymers to create individual effects to give their products a marketing advantage.

Combined with their ease of use and excellent durability, Moonshine® glass flake based effect pigments can provide enhanced quality, appearance and performance for a superior surface. Silky subtle effects may be achieved with low loadings of the Shimmer particle size products, whilst intense sparkle can be achieve utilizing the sparkle particle size products

The Moonshine® range may be used in most polymers and most processes either used directly or as a coating. It is of importance that good dispersion of the pigment in the medium is achieved as this is necessary to achieve optimal effects, this should be without prolonged mixing cycles or high shear.
