SILBERLINE Introduces New Aluminum Effect Pigments for the Plastics Market

TAMAQUA, Pennsylvania -- Silberline, a worldwide industry leader in the design, manufacture and technical application of high quality, special effect and performance pigments introduces their newest product line for the Plastics Market.

Extra SPARKLE SILVET® 600-10-E1

Extra SPARKLE SILVET products were developed to provide aluminum pigments with the potential for creating new application designs and paint-replacement opportunities for the plastics market. Alluring and novel aesthetics can be accomplished with the unique shape of this aluminum pigment series.  Moving from the traditional 2-dimensional "flake" geometry to a 3-dimensional "sphere," the geometry provides stylists and formulators a new approach for color design.

Carried in SILVET® technology, the Extra SPARKLE SILVET Series allows formulators the ability to create low-opacity metallic effects in a wide range of polymers. This system has proven effects for easy and safe handling, incorporation, and dispersion for a variety of processing options. Processing options include injection molding, film & sheet and profile extrusions.

When formulated with transparent pigments or dyes, the fine pinpoint aesthetic character of Extra SPARKLE SILVET 600-10-E1 products creates subtle tones and a three-dimensional image within the final product. The Extra SPARKLE SILVET series allows for low flow line appearance while providing a stylist the option to bypass mold re configurations and offer new color designs quickly.


SILVET E LT12882 and SILVET E LT12883 grades are economical leafing aluminum pigments with corn flake geometry now being produced in pellet form for ease of handling and reduction of potential airborne contaminants.

This new SILVET E series is engineered to enable customer solutions for good opacity, hiding, brilliance in reflectiveness and brightness for the agriculture films and other applications and opportunities.
