Aluminium paste generally consists of microscopic flake-shaped aluminium particles finely dispersed in an organic-solvent or aqueous-based carrier. It is widely used in paints, coatings, and inks, to provide metallic effects and to protect metal and plastic substrates, in applications ranging from automotive and shipbuilding to home applicances, cellphones, and digital cameras.
In handling and use, it is safer than aluminium powders, which may pose a high risk of fire or explosion, but care is nevertheless necessary due to the flammability of its organic solvent, as described in Precautions for Handling and Storage.
Aluminum pastes, a kind of metallic pigments, is formed by a great amount of tiny aluminum flakes. It is often used in dope, printing ink, and plastics. When used with other paints, special effect may appear. The particle diameter of aluminum pastes is larger than that of color pigments. While the particle size of color pigments is in the wavelength range of visible light, the flake diameter of special effect pigments is generally around 5-45μm.
Whiteness & brightness
The metallic effect of e.g. car finishes is achieved by the reflection and scattering of light on the flakes, which are better or worse orientated in the film.
Particle shape varies from irregular flakes(cornflakes) to almost round particles(silver dollars). Silver dollars are the latest pigment generation and have excellent optical properties. They are produced in an extremely elaborate process using special, very fine granulates. Its regular particle shape decided its maximal light reflecting mill finish is hard to be curled and thus have excellent optical properties.
Particle size distribution
The granules of the aluminum flakes are very title so it is impossible that's every granule has the same size. The proportion of granules in different size is called particle size distribution. Particle size distribution thus has important effect on the optical properties of metallic pigments. More narrow the particle size distribution, more equal the size of the granules and more excellent the optical properties.
