Metalure and Silvershine are ultra-brilliant aluminium pigment dispersions creating the highest level of reflectance in coatings and inks. In a special physical vapour deposition (PVD) process, extremely thin aluminium pigments, which are free of lubricants, are manufactured. These platelets have an uniform, smooth surface exhibiting perfect non-leafing properties that result in a mirror-like effect. This effect cannot be achieved by conventional metallic effect pigments.

The Metalure and Silvershine dispersions are added to the finished paint or ink while stirring continuously. Compared to conventional aluminum pigments, Metalure and Silvershine show a significantly increased shear stability.

In the printing industry, the ability to simulate the reflectivity and flash of foil, hot stamping and vacuum metalizing makes Metalure the optimum product to reduce costs by selectively printing in-line.

The striking features of Metalure and Silvershine are:

Chrome-like finishes similar to metallization

  • Very good rub resistance
  • High reflective values
  • Highly brilliant colour effects in combination with organic colour pigments
  • Excellent colour strength and hiding power
  • Chrome-like effects due to low dry film thickness
  • Overcoating with topcoats possible
  • Product grades can be mixed to obtain further colour shades
  • Also available as Hydroshines for water based applications
  • A real alternative to Electrochemical Chrome Plating
