Solvent Selection: Polar solvents, i.e., alcohols, esters, ketones having low surface tension are preferred to provide ideal wetting properties of the flakes.

Recommended Dispersion Procedure: Add a sufficient amount of solvent (1/3 to 1/2 the weight of aluminum paste) to the aluminum pigment in order to develop a thick, creamy consistency under slow-speed mixing.

Caution: The use of high-speed mixing equipment, such as Cowles dispersers, may distort the aluminum flake, resulting in poor appearance.
