PPG Automotive Refinish recently introduced Ditzler Big Flake to its Vibrance Collection brand of custom colors and special effect finishes.
Ditzler Big Flake consists of six large metallic flakes that produce a unique “retro” look when added to a basecoat or clearcoat finish. The new Ditzler Big Flake line is available in silver and gold, as well as in four color-shifting options 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 mid-coats to create a retro special effect finish. It can also be added to color blenders or Radiance II to create a mid-coat/pearl-coat effect.
The product is named after the Ditzler Color Company, which was founded in 1902 and purchased by the Pittsburgh Plate Glass Company in 1928. Known as PPG today, the company marketed Automotive Refinish products under the Ditzler name until 1986.
