Iridescent Glitter

Geocrystal® is a range of brilliantly coloured iridescent glitters cut from polyester film. This unique glitter is capable of refracting light in a rainbow of colours. Due to the transparency of Geocrystal®, this glitter provides different effects depending on the background colour that it is placed over, resulting in a huge combination of possible optical effects. GEOTECH offers 20 different types of iridescent glitter and the particle sizes range from 50 microns - 3 mm. These products are heat resistant up to around 80°C. A special solvent resistant grade (Geocrystal® SR) is available for nail polishes and non-aqueous coating systems.

Geocrystal® is commonly used in the cosmetic industry as a colour flake. These pigments go into products such as nail polish, pressed powders, lipsticks and gel based formulations. Compliance with cosmetic regulations is valid in the UK and IE. Applications are far reaching however and don't just include cosmetics. Geocrystal® has also been used in the toy industry for example, to provide that eye catching sparkle. Other application areas include screen printing, PVC flooring, wall papers and all manner of decorative coatings.
