SPARKLE SILVEX® Premier 838-20-DOA Aluminum Pigment


SPARKLE SILVEX Premier 838-20-DOA is a medium particle size, clean, bright automotive quality aluminum pigment dampened with mineral oil to minimize the potential for generating airborne pigment particles. The pigment flake has a lenticular geometry. The particle size distribution range is highly controlled to produce very clean chromatic effects when used with transparent pigments and dyes. This grade will produce very clean metallic effects with medium grain aesthetics when used alone or with other pigments.

-Coarse, SPARKLE SILVER® Premier flake grade

-Damp powder



SPARKLE SILVEX Premier DOA grades are aluminum pigment flakes dampened with a plasticizer to help prevent the individual flakes from becoming airborne during handling and processing. They are well-suited for use in liquid colorant applications where processing temperatures are below the volatilization point of the carrier. SPARKLE SILVEX Premier DOA grades are compatible with a variety of resins including vinyl, polyolefins and styrene. SPARKLE SILVEX Premier DOA grades are dampened with dioctyl adipate. SPARKLE SILVEX Premier DOA grades can be used in vinyl screen printing ink formulations with good results. In order to maintain optimum aesthetics, SPARKLE SILVEX Premier grades should be dispersed properly.

SPARKLE SILVEX Premier aluminum pigments consist of aluminum pigment flakes dampened with a liquid plasticizer. Incorporation techniques should include the addition of an appropriate medium, such as additional plasticizer to allow the individual flakes to disassociate and distribute evenly. This can be done by adding an equal amount of plasticizer to the SPARKLE SILVEX Premier and letting the mixture set until it becomes soft and can be mixed thoroughly under low shear until smooth.


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.
