E-2169 Aluminium Paste

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

E 2169 is a fine particle size, non-leafing, regular purity, cornflake grade. It has greater hiding power (opacity), a brighter face color and darker flop than the well-known SPARKLE SILVERĀ® 6246-AR. E 2169 is especially suitable for automotive finishes. The combination of hiding and color provides very cost effective formulations where acid stain resistance is not essential. It is also expected to find use in high quality printing inks, for which a granular form, ET 2331, is available

INCORPORATION GUIDELINES

The paste should be soaked in about its own weight of solvent, ideally for one to eight hours. If using solvent alone is not feasible, the liquid coating medium can be substituted, but the dispersion time may be extended. Dispersion is best achieved by low energy stirring, using a slow speed blade capable of moving the whole mass. Further solvent or medium may be added at this stage. When a smooth consistency, free of soft aggregates has been obtained, the balance of the formulation may be slowly added. High shear should be avoided as it bends and breaks the flakes, reducing their brightness.


SAFETY AND HANDLING

Aluminum pigment should be stored in the original shipping container and kept tightly sealed. Store containers in a cool, dry, well-ventilated, and properly rated area. Avoid any conditions that will suspend or float the particles in the air, creating a dust cloud. Avoid all possible sources of ignition. For additional information, please refer to the Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for this product, available from Silberline upon request. An SDS is supplied with all samples of this grade.
