SILVET® AD Ultra 015 Aluminum Pigment

PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

SILVET AD Ultra 015 presents a very bright, medium-fine particle size, ultra “silver dollar” grade of non-leafing aluminum flake pigment in an easily handled, low dusting, dry, granular form. The advanced flake geometry and exceptionally narrow particle size distribution offers a “best in class” silver dollar product. It exhibits extremely high opacity for a silver dollar type pigment.

-Very bright, very high opacity aluminum flake pigment

-Widely compatible, low dusting, dry granular form

-Excellent adhesion in solvent-based inks


PRODUCT APPLICATION

This grade is especially suitable for solvent-based gravure and flexographic inks, in which it displays optimal opacity and adhesion, particularly on polymer films. SILVET AD Ultra 015 is dispersible in all common organic solvents, except aliphatic hydrocarbons. It is compatible with a wide range of film formers, such as NC, PVB and acrylics, but is unsuitable for water-based systems.

INCORPORATION GUIDELINES

The recommended method of dispersion is to soak the granules in 1-2 times their weight of solvent, then mix gently to a creamy consistency, free of agglomerates by low shear stirring. When completely dispersed, the balance of the formulation may be slowly added under gentle but efficient agitation. High shear mixing should be avoided as it bends and breaks the aluminum flakes, causing darkening and loss of reflectivity.


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.
