EXPERTISE IN SILVER COLOURS
Silver Aluminium pigments for the printing industry
Silver Aluminium pigments for Flexo- and Gravure printing
coarser particles can be used (up to 14 microns). The pigments are odor-free due thanks to the unique dry milling process. This parameter is important for e.g. food packaging. We recommend our MIRAL grades.
Silver Aluminium pigments for Offset printing
is an indirect printing process in which an inked image is transferred from a plate to a rubber blanket and then to a flat substrate. The process requires extremely small particle sizes in the 3-8 micron range. We recommend our MIRAL grades.
Silver Aluminium pigments for Screen printing
offers the advantage of being suitable for a very wide range of surfaces such as paper, cardboard, plastic, leather, textile, glass and metal. Even non-flat surfaces and substrates can easily be printed. We recommend using grades with a D90 value which is 3 times smaller than the screen mesh size. Our SPARAL and DIPAL grades accentuate the glitter and sparkle in the end product while our SPRAYAL range delivers more opacity.

Silver Aluminium pigments for Aerosol coatings
our SPRAYAL grades are ideal for the aerosol spray can market. The rule of thumb for the use of metallic pigments in aerosol spray cans is that the opening of the nozzle should be at least 3 times larger than the D90 particle size of the metallic pigment in the formulation.
Silver Aluminium pigments for Can- and Coil coatings
our MIRAL and FINAL grades in powder or paste form provide the highest level of barrier protection in epoxy phenolic formulations and others. The product range combines functionality with an appealing metallic effect. The finesse and uniformity of the particles ensures optimum coverage and electrical conductivity. Measuring the porosity in the interior food can coatings is one of the most important tests for can coating producers. In this test electric current is passed through the coating and expressed in mA. For aluminium pigmented coatings the standard is set to max 10 mA. Pigments in powder form deliver the best results in concealing imperfections in the metal of food and beverage cans through coatings.
Silver Aluminium pigments for Industrial coatings
painting by immersion in a dip paint is a widely used technique with various substrates made of paper, wood, metal, plastics, terracotta, … but also with flowers and plants. The 2-pack water-based system eliminates the use of hazardous solvents and offers:
- excellent working properties
- high brilliance,
- perfect adherence
- high coating elasticity

Silver Aluminium pigments for Compounds
Silver Aluminium pigments for Masterbatches
Silver Aluminium pigments can easily resist temperatures up to 240 °C for 30 minutes. Therefore they are often used in Masterbatches to give the metallic feeling. Often used in combination with colors, our SPARAL grades produce sparkle whereas our FINAL and MIRAL grades bring opacity.
