PPG Automotive Refinish has supplemented its Ditzler Big Flake product line with seven brilliant new flakes. The addition brings to 13 the number of Ditzler Big Flake selections available. The popular flakes, intended for use with PPG’s Vibrance Collection brand of custom colors and special effect finishes, add intense color and sparkle to custom car, truck or motorcycle finishes and are frequently found on award-winning show vehicles, according to the company. The new flakes are mini gold, mini silver, red, orange, blue, purple and green and are coded VM4420 through VM4426, respectively.
Ditzler Big Flake products can be used to create a broad spectrum of basecoat and tricoat custom color formulations. The large flakes can be added directly to basecoats or used as a ground coat for Radiance II midcoats. They can also be added to color blenders or PPG’s Radiance II and used as a midcoat or pearlcoat effect.
PPG has updated the Ditzler Big Flake color card to include all 13 available flakes. In addition, with the introduction of the new flakes, PPG is offering special promotional pricing on the six original flakes: silver, gold and four color-shifting options including green to purple, blue to red, red to gold and gold to silver.
