SILVEX 225-20-DOA is a fine particle size aluminum pigment dampened with Dioctyl Adipate [DOA] to minimize the potential for generating airborne pigment particles. This is an economical grade with cornflake geometry and wide particle size distribution range. Due to its fine particle size and broad particle size distribution, this grade is well-suited for imparting opacity at low loading levels. SILVEX 225-20-DOA can be used to create a muted masstone metallic appearance with good opacity at low cost. This grade is not recommended for use with chromatic pigments as it will not produce clean color effects. Although this grade is based on a leafing aluminum pigment, it will not exhibit leafing characteristics in most plastic applications.
