Polyester is a collective name for many different textiles that use polyester yarn. The basis is polyethylene terephthalate. Sound like something sketchy? It is not! The abbreviation of this is PET, the well known material for bags, plastic bottles and also glitter!
Polyester is a very versatile kind of glitter. It is gorgeous and comes in lots of colors and types. It sparkles more than craft due to the thinnest of the film. It also handles heat better than most other types.
Polyester glitters can be used for lots of things. For example it can be used for: flooring, makeup, crayons, cars, boating and other fiberglass or gelcoat applications and of course floral decorations (and many more).
Polyester is not biodegradable, but can be recycled.
Iridescent and fluor
Iridescence is the phenomenon of certain surfaces that appear to gradually change color as the angle of view changes. Our iridescent glitter gives the same special effect. It is made out of iridescent polyester film.
Fluorine colors are always bright because they contain pigments that absorb ultraviolet light. The absorbed light then bounces back into the environment.
We have 7 iridescent and 5 fluor colors in our webshop.
