SPARKLE SILVET® 960-30-FDA is a fine particle size, bright, SPARKLE SILVER® aluminum pigment produced in pellet form to reduce the potential for generating airborne particles and to improve ease of handling. The pigment flake has a polished cornflake geometry. The particle size distribution range is controlled to produce clean chromatic effects when used with transparent pigments and dyes. SPARKLE SILVET 960-30-FDA is suitable for use in both plastics and powder coatings applications.

SPARKLE SILVET FDA grades are easy to disperse and are compatible with a variety of polymers, particularly polyolefins. It is typically used to make concentrates or compounds for use in final processing by injection molding, extrusion, blow molding or blown film processes. In some cases, SPARKLE SILVET FDA can be used directly in end-use processing but care must be taken to ensure complete dispersion is achieved. Their pellet or granular form make them easy to handle and incorporate. SPARKLE SILVET FDA grades are provided in a carrier system suitable for use in applications that require FDA compliance. Specific FDA compliance information is available upon request.

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.
