SPARKLE SILVET® Ultra 0017-20-P Aluminium Pigment


SPARKLE SILVET Ultra 0017-20-P is an extremely bright, silver dollar aluminum pigment produced in pellet form to reduce the potential for generating airborne particles and to improve ease of handling. In addition, the low shear manufacturing process produces pellets that are easy to disperse by most plastics processing equipment. Due to its high brilliance and controlled particle size, it can be used to produce the appearance of brushed steel or anodized aluminum. When used with transparent pigments or dyes, this grade will produce exceptionally clean, bright metallic colors. SPARKLE SILVET Ultra 0017-20-P is suitable for use in both plastics and powder coatings applications.

-Fine particle size aluminum flake pigment

-Aluminium pigment granules


SPARKLE SILVET Ultra 0017-20-P is recommended for use with engineering resins or transparent polymers where compatibility, maintenance of polymer clarity and distinctness of image [D.O.I.] observed from the finished part are important. SPARKLE SILVET Ultra 0017-20-P is compatible with polycarbonate, ABS, ASA, Acrylics and other high-end resins. SPARKLE SILVET Ultra P grades are not recommended for use with polyolefins, which are more effectively pigmented with SILVET® E, SILVET E7 and SILVEX® products.

It is normally sufficient to tumble blend the pellets with the base resin and any additional colorants or additives before processing. Incorporation techniques should not subject the flakes to high shear forces.


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.
