Aluminium pigments stand out owing to the unique visual properties they provide.

Aluminium pigment manufacturers use milling processes involving volatile solvents. However, our represented company Metaflake has made a commitment to sustainability and innovation through an entirely new process.

Its unique, environmentally-friendly manufacturing technology involves a water-borne, solvent-free milling process.

Which aluminium pigments are marketed by Comindex?

By using this unique methodology they procure a range of Silver Dollar geometry products and varied particle sizes so you can choose the best one for your formulation. They also incorporate exceptional metallic shine.

If you want greater opacity, enhanced colour appearance or an improved flip-flop effect, we would recommend using Ultra-thin Sillver Dollar geometry pigments, a range with improved properties.

What are the benefits of ultra-thin pigments?

Below we have listed a range of benefits and applications afforded by this range of pigments:

  • Exceptional metallic shine
  • Controlled, thin particle-size distribution
  • 30–35% greater opacity compared to traditional Silver Dollar pigments
  • Suitability for mono-layer coatings
  • Recommended for smooth glossy effects even at low solid contents
  • High flop level obtained with excellent formulation and pigment orientation
  • Suitable for achieving remarkable colour effects when combined with transparent pigments

These pigments offer a broad range of applications: decorative paints (high-end décor), coatings on plastic surfaces, paints for car parts, inks, and so on.

For further information about these products, please contact our technical advisory team or, if you are attending the ECS (from 28 to 30 March), we can organise a face-to-face visit.
