Non Leafing Aluminium Paste - SILVER PREMIER

SILVER PREMIER grades typically formulated in High-aromatic Mineral Spirit for good dispersion, are non-leafing Aluminium pastes of semi-cornflake configurations with modest irregularity in particle shapes and edges. Because of controlled particle sizes, these grades provide higher sparkling appearance and higher surface coverage even with relatively larger particle size. These grades are highly desirable for automotive refinishes, decorative coatings, screen printing and other various industrial coatings.
