Holy flake, batman!
It seems that what's old is new again, but for good reason-it's cool! PPG Automotive Refinish recently introduced Ditzler Big Flake to its Vibrance Collection brand of custom colors and special-effect finishes. The Ditzler Big Flake consists of six large metallic flakes that produce a unique old-school look when added to a basecoat or clearcoat finish and is available in silver and gold as well as four color-shifting options including green to purple, blue to red, red to gold, and gold to silver. Ditzler Big Flake can be added directly to the basecoat or used as a ground coat for PPG's Radiance II midcoats to create an exceptional retro special-effect finish. It can also be added to color blenders or Radiance II to create a midcoat/pearl-coat effect. For more information about Ditzler Big Flake and the entire PPG Vibrance Collection, visit your local PPG distributor, or go to the PPG Automotive Refinish Web site at www.ppgrefinish.com.
