About us

Glassflake is a pioneer in the glass flake industry, being the first to produce flakes utilising the spun technology or a rotary process as it is often referred to. As a result of introduction of our innovative technologies to the market and continuous development we currently work with many major companies.

It was Glassflake who developed the spun technology in the early 80s with the aim of producing thinner flake with a better thickness consistency. At that time all glass flakes produced were thick and had wide variation in thickness and therefore had limited application finding its primary use in the coatings industry. Through further innovation we introduced a novel substrate, a flake with a true thickness of 1 micron which found its way to the effect pigments market.

Our headquarters and main manufacturing site are located in Leeds, UK. We have further manufacturing in Langfang, China. Sales offices are operating from Perth, Australia and Jacksonville, US. In addition to the aforementioned facilities we serve our global clients through our strategic network of distributors.
