SILVEX® 210-20-C


-Ultrafine aluminium flake pigment

-Low-dusting, plasticiser dispersion, granule form

-Compatible with polyolefins and other polymers


SX210-20-C provides a very fine particle size grade of aluminium flake pigment, supplied as a non-dusting soft granule or paste. The high concentration of metal flake in mineral oil carrier ensures both maximum formulating flexibility and good system compatibility. This grade is recommended for the mass pigmentation of polyolefins and for masterbatches, including liquid masterbatches. It may also be suitable for other thermoplastics, but compatibility tests are suggested.

For most applications it will be sufficient to tumble blend the product with polymer granules and other colorants prior to extrusion or moulding. High shear at any stage of incorporation should be avoided as it bends and breaks the aluminium flakes, causing darkening and loss of metallic brightness.


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.
