INCORPORATION GUIDELINES

The paste should be pre-soaked in a solvent at a paste: solvent ratio between 1:1 and 3:1. Pre-soaking generally takes from one to eight hours and should be followed by gentle mixing. Use low shear, slow speed mixing to achieve a smooth consistency free of agglomerates. High shear dispersion techniques must be avoided, as they will distort the aluminum flakes.


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.
