How Glitter is Made

The glitter that we sell is made from 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 is a single strong color.

The holographic glitter is made from film that already has the holographic quality. The same goes for iridescent. The films are colored and treated before they are cut.

There are totally different types and sizes of machines that are used for chopping glitter. Most machines have blades that cut the glitter into either hex shape items or square form pieces relying on how the film is fed into it. Other machines die-lower shapes from the film. With some machines, the hex shape flakes are fed in at an angle and square flakes are fed straight in. Completely different blade configurations are used primarily based on the scale of the flake.

There are totally different technologies utilized by totally different corporations 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 present you nice glitter…. or is it?

You possibly can take nice film and run it by means of a badly set up machine and you will not get a clean cut. When you check out low cost glitter, you’ll not only see that the flakes usually are not uniform in shape, but you will notice little flecks of film that should not be there at all.

Numerous bad glitters come from outside the US the place they use cheap film and operate machines that aren’t well arrange or have poor blades. Glitter from other countries are also a wild card- is it really non-toxic or are they just saying so? Fact in advertising isn’t the same around the globe as it is right here in the USA.

Finally, there are coatings on films. For instance, when you purchase a cheap metallic glitter it probably does not have an epoxy coating (ours does). This could not matter too much if you’re utilizing it for simple crafts. However, it issues rather a lot if you are utilizing it for flooring, boats and in solvents!
