Powder coatings

The AVL metallic pigments are best suited for free blending when preparing the batches to be sprayed, this in order to keep an optimal metallic effect and brilliance. Any extrusion involving the pigment will break the particles and reduce the metallic effect and other properties as a result.

Please mix the pigments directly in the drum containing the monomer at the required 2-5% concentration.

Generally, finer grades are used to ensure a smooth and homogeneous texture of the substrate to be coated.

Aluminium pigments will withstand the curing temperature of 180°C . The color of bronze pigments will be affected when the exposure to a temperature higher than 100°C is longer than 5 minutes. We recommend in such case to reduce the exposure in time when items are cured at a temperature higher than 100°C, until the optimal compromise is found between the curing temperature and time of exposure. 

Metallic effect:

To facilitate your selection , the AVL grades are for decorative applications divided in 3 distinct categories of metallic effects :

Star: The brightest metallic effect with sparkle.

Shine: Midrange between sparkle and smooth/homogeneous metallic effect.

Splendor : Homogeneous metallic effect with the highest opacity , still with good luster.
