STANDART® PC Leafing aluminium pigments
The pigments of the PC series are highly brilliant leafing aluminium pigment powders which are especially designed for powder coating applications. The distinctive orientation and parallel alignment of the PC leafing aluminium pigments to the surface of the powder coating film yield extraordinarily brilliant, chrome-like coating effects. In this context the rule stating that the finer the PC leafing pigments, the more defined the chrome effect applies.
The decisive advantages of the PC leafing pigment grades are:
- excellent dispersibility
- high colour strength (particularly also in dry-blended powder coating systems)
- outstanding yield rate (complete hiding power at a pigment level of 1% to 2%)
- very good processability (in dry-blended as well as in bonded powder coating systems)
- good electrical charging
- easy processing with Corona and Tribo techniques
The typical pigment level of PC leafing aluminium pigments varies between 0.4% and 2.0%. For abrasion resistant coatings and whenever demands are placed on chemical resistance or weather stability, an adequate protective clear coat is recommended.
