PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

SPARKLEBRITE Ultra 012nl-PAC is a brilliant, non-leafing aluminum pigment with lenticular flake geometry and a highly controlled particle size distribution range with a median particle size of 12 microns. It was developed to provide exceptional metallic effects in solvent-based inks. Metallic brilliance, excellent transfer and coverage are the notable characteristics of SPARKLEBRITE Ultra 012nl-PAC. The carrier solvent for this grade is isopropyl acetate and therefore is not recommended for use in waterborne inks. – Brilliant, non-leafing grade – Medium particle size – Isopropyl acetate carrier
