Effect pigments, aluminium pigments
In addition to barrier protection from moisture and corrosion, the use of leafing aluminum pigments in roof coatings provides the following typical advantages: The reflection of UV rays offers protection from the photochemical degradation of the organic coating matrix and the substrate; the reflection of IR rays provides protection from overheating of the building (e.g. storage rooms).

EM aluminium pastes are standard, white spirit-based leafing materials and come in a particle-size range of approximately 10-20 µm.
They are mainly used in decorative and industrial coatings and, in particular, for functional coatings which require a high degree of barrier protection (corrosion-protection coatings) or high light-reflecting properties ( e.g. roof coatings).

Grandal® pigments are granulated, pellet-shaped, solvent-free, leafing and non-leafing aluminium pigments containing urea-aldehyde-resin binders.
They are easy to dose and, due to the pre-wetting with a universally compatible binder, are also very easy to disperse.
