Interior

Metallic effect coatings are also applied in the interiors of vehicles: Decorative molding, instrument panels, brand emblems, radio housings and much more. In many cases, in order to achieve high gloss effects similar to high quality chrome or stainless steel, VMPs (vacuum metallized pigments) in the Decomet® series are used.

Aquamet®

The Aquamet® product range includes water-based, non-leafing aluminium pastes based on Alumet®, Alucar®, Alubright® and Alushine®, i.e both Cornflake and Silverdollar qualities in a particle-size range of approximately 11-56 µm.

The Aquamet® NPW and Aquamet® WPO versions are stabilized using phosphororganic compounds and contain water as binding medium. The Aquamet® CP/BG pastes contain pigments with an inorganic coating and butyl glycol as water-miscible solvent. Aquamet® products are used in numerous water-based applications. The specific choice of product depends on the binder, substrate and the required film properties. Our application-technology experts will be pleased to help you select the optimal product for your application.

Decomet®

Decomet® is SCHLENK’s range of vacuum metallized pigments, in other words those aluminium pigments which are not produced using the classic grinding process, but rather by the removal of an aluminium film from a support upon which it had been deposited by a PVD process. This method gives the pigment particles an extremely smooth surface which reflects light.

Coatings containing this pigment have a glossy metallic appearance and, depending on the composition, are described as having a “chrome effect”, “platinum effect” or “stainless-steel effect”. VMP particles are much thinner than classic aluminium pigments and have better covering power, a fact which needs to be taken into consideration during formulation. Decomet® can be used in conventional, water-based and UV-curing coatings systems.
