These inks contain glitter particles. The brilliant and sparkling effect is produced by specular reflection of light from the many surfaces of the platelets with parallel orientation at various depths within the coating film. Light striking the platelets is partially reflected and partially transmitted through the platelets. More transparent than coated mica, these sequins provide more chroma, more depth and more important sparkle effect. However, they consist of a larger particle size.
These glitter inks are available in UV or solvent based formulation, in the range corresponding to the given application. These glittering effects are used for decorative purposes (postcards, bags, festive products, cosmetics…). The OVS inks (Optical Variable Shades) present a multi-color effect depending on the viewing angle
- first dominant color: frontal observation
- 2nd color: grazing light observation
We offer glitters in the form of coated glass particles or metallized polyester particles.
