SILVET® 460-30-E1 Aluminum Pigment

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

SILVET 460-30-E1 is a bright, coarse particle size aluminum glitter pigment produced in pellet form to reduce the potential for generating airborne particles and to improve ease of handling. The pellets are composed of 70% aluminum pigment carried in 30% polyolefin and are produced by a low shear process for easy dispersion. This grade has the smallest particle size of the glitter pigment family and will produce a fine grain glitter effect when used alone or with chromatic pigments. Because of its narrow particle size distribution range it will produce a cleaner sparkle effect than other aluminum pigments of similar particle size.

-Glitter flake grade

-Granular form

-Coarse, thick aluminum flake

-Non-leafing


PRODUCT APPLICATION

SILVET E1 grades are easy to disperse and are compatible with a variety of polymers, particularly polyolefins. They are typically used to make concentrates or compounds for use in final processing by injection molding, extrusion, blow molding or blown film processes. In some cases SILVET E1 can be used directly in end-use processing but care must be taken to ensure complete dispersion is achieved. Their pellet or granular form make them easy to handle and incorporate.

INCORPORATION GUIDELINES

It is normally sufficient to tumble blend the pellets with the base resin and any additional colorants or additives before processing. Incorporation techniques should not subject the flakes to high shear forces.


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.
