These Metallic Paint Flake work with any base clear, blender or binder for a fantastic paint job!
Our Bronze Metal Flake additives are very versatile and can be used in so many applications. Can also be called Brown Metal Flake.

- Mini Flake (.008″) are for people looking for more flash, and willing to work a bit harder.
- Bass Boat Flake (.015″) are for those who just plain want to get that 70’s big flake look and are willing to work for it.
- Flake have a temperature tolerance of 400 degrees, making them fine under heat lamps and in Powder Coating Booths.
- A little bit goes a long way. When you use about a tablespoon per quart, “One Jar Does a Car.”
- Solvent resistant. Used in Automotive Paint, Nail Polish, Dip, Epoxy Concrete Sealer, Water-Based Coatings, Powder-Coatings, Fiberglass, and even Elmer’s Glue ®.
We now offer all sizes of Flake in many of our popular colors. We personally like the small Flake, because of the ease of use, but there are a lot of people out there who want larger metal Flake, so we are giving them to you.
Creating a great Bronze metal flake paint job is super simple with our Flake. Just choose your base coat (black is good if you want the paint to take on the color of the Flake), and add a heaping tablespoon of our flake to any clear coat (although we recommend a base clear for mixing the flake into, like PPG’s DBC-500, or HOK’s intercoat clear).
Keep in mind, that even though they are called “Bronze metal flake” additives, most of our Flake are made from special solvent-resistant polyesters that can withstand the chemicals in the clear coat. See our tips pages for more information, our download our instructional PDF. Remember, unlike some Flake that people dust onto wet clear-coat dry and spend about 400 bucks for 20 jars of flake to paint a single auto, our system is much more efficient. As we say around here, “One jar paints a car.”
Not only are all of our metal Flake completely compatible with vehicle dip, we were the first to supply the dip companies with pigments. If you have any reservations about whether our products work in vehicle dip, you should know that we were the pioneers who introduced Plasti Dip Pearls to the world.
