SPARKLEBRITE™ 011NL-PAC Aluminum Paste


SPARKLEBRITE 011NL-PAC is a bright, high opacity non-leafing aluminum flake pigment based on cornflake geometry. It is a cost effective pigment for producing strong metallic effects in liquid flexographic and gravure ink systems. SPARKLEBRITE 011NL-PAC is carried in isopropyl acetate.




SPARKLEBRITE 011NL-PAC is dispersible in all common organic solvents, except aliphatic hydrocarbons. It is compatible with a wide range of resins, such as NC, PVB and acrylics, but is unsuitable for water-based systems.

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


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.
