SILVET AD 010 presents a very fine particle size grade of non-leafing aluminum flake pigment in an easily handled, low dusting, granular form. It has improved whiteness and brightness over the related SPARKLE SILVET® 970-20-J. It is recommended for high coverage solvent-based gravure and flexographic inks, in which it displays optimal opacity and adhesion, particularly on polymer films. This grade is compatible with a wide range of film formers and is dispersible in all common organic solvents, except aliphatic hydrocarbons. It is not suitable for water-based or ethyl cellulose systems.
