Non-leafing aluminium pigments
The non-leafing aluminium pigments are well embedded into the matrix of the powder coating film which gives an additional barrier effect providing further protection for the aluminium pigments against mechanical and chemical influences.
Metallic powder coating finishes containing non-leafing aluminium pigments perform significantly better under mechanical strain, with less abrasion of the metallic pigments and noticeably higher chemical resistance against corrosive chemicals compared to powder coating finishes based on leafing aluminium pigments.
There are three different pigment categories of non-leafing aluminium pigments available to meet different requirements:
- High-performance pigment category: PCS
- Standard pigment category: PCR and PCA
Each of the three pigment categories includes pigment grades of different particle sizes, providing a variety of optical effects, ranging from crystalline sparkle to silky gloss.
