PP aluminium powders

PP aluminium powders are extremely brilliant, polished leafing pigments in the particle-size range of approximately 10-20 µm.

They are used for decorative and industrial coatings, as well as for the coloring of plastics. The relevant safety regulations must be adhered to when using aluminium powders.

Constant®

The Constant® product group consists of gold-bronze and aluminium powders with an inorganic coating. Their resulting high thermal and chemical resistance makes them suitable for use in plastics (masterbatches), in particular, but also coating systems that are sensitive in their reactions.

Constant® ON

The Constant® product group consists of gold-bronze and aluminium powders with an inorganic coating. Their resulting high thermal and chemical resistance makes them suitable for use in plastics (masterbatches), in particular, but also coating systems that are sensitive in their reactions.

Grandal® P

Grandal® P is a product group that has been specially developed for use in plastics.

As with conventional Grandal® products, these special pigments are also solvent-free granulates that use polyethylene wax as a binder. The granulates produce no dust during handling, are simple to measure and are very easy to incorporate in thermoplastic polymers due to pre-wetting with PE wax.

Luminor®

Luminor® is a relatively coarse gold-bronze group of products with a particle-size range of approximately 16-50 µm.

They are used in both brilliant industrial coatings and in decorative applications, as well as in the plastic industry. For sensitive coating systems, we recommend the use of Constant® qualities.

ON

ON pastes (both gold-bronze, but also leafing and non-leafing aluminium pastes) were specially designed for use in thermoplastic plastics.

The solvent paste is paraffin oil which guarantees an excellent and dust-free incorporation into the polymers.

Standard powders

Standard aluminium powders are uncoated, non-leafing pigment powders that can be used by the coating and plastics industry wherever traditional paste solvents are problematic due to incompatibility or because of their unsatisfactory dissolving characteristics.

For safety reasons, the use of pastes is recommended.
