How Glitter is Made
The glitter that we sell is made from totally different types of film. The Craft Glitter is made from PVC film and the Polyester Glitter is made from PET films. The iridescent line combines both PET and acrylic together.
The metallic glitters are made from film that could be a single solid color.
The holographic glitter is made from film that already has the holographic quality. The same goes for iridescent. The films are colored and handled earlier than they're cut.
There are different types and sizes of machines which are used for slicing glitter. Most machines have blades that cut the glitter into either hex form items or square form items depending on how the film is fed into it. Different machines die-reduce shapes from the film. With some machines, the hex form flakes are fed in at an angle and sq. flakes are fed straight in. Different blade configurations are used based on the scale of the flake.
There are totally different technologies used by different firms of course.
his is an finishless topic as there are so many variations between really good glitter and really bad glitter. First the film matters an entire lot. High-high quality film is going to provide you nice glitter.... or is it?
You'll be able to take great film and run it by way of a badly arrange machine and you will not get a clean cut. When you take a look at low-cost glitter, you will not only see that the flakes aren't uniform in form, however you will notice little flecks of film that should not be there at all.
A whole lot of bad glitters come from outside the US where they use cheap film and operate machines that are not well set up or have poor blades. Glitter from other countries are also a wild card- is it really non-poisonous or are they just saying so? Fact in advertising is just not the identical world wide as it is right here in the USA.
Finally, there are coatings on films. For instance, in case you purchase a cheap metallic glitter it in all probability does not have an epoxy coating (ours does). This might not matter an excessive amount of if you're utilizing it for easy crafts. Nonetheless, it matters quite a bit if you're utilizing it for flooring, boats and in solvents!
