Cosmic flakes are made of polyester and are part of the Metal Flakes family. They are 200 microns particles, delivered in the form of a colourless and transparent powder.
What is the difference with classic Metal Flakes?
The Metal Flakes from the Cosmic range are transparent and interfering. They create colour by reflection of light, whereas the classic flakes are opaque particles already coloured.
The Cosmic effect:
The Cosmic flakes disappear and reappear depending on one's viewpoint. They go out and sparkle as you move around the painted part.
Some references are Chameleon type because they can display two colours.
The Cosmic range flakes are a bit finer and easier to cover with topcoats.
In all cases, it is necessary to apply several passes of topcoat.

Dosing: from 30 to 90 g/L, depending on the desired coverage.
