Our pigments for powder coatings can either be leafing or non-leafing, corn flake or Silver Dollar type.
The leafing type pigments are suitable for dry blended or bonded powder coating systems and provide a specular chrome like appearance.
The non-leafing type pigments can be encapsulated with either an inorganic silica coating or an organic polymer type coating.
The silica coating provides superior spraying characteristics in either Tribo or Corona powder coat systems providing superior charge separation help eliminate problems such as picture framing as well as enhancing the chemical resistance of the metallic appearance.
The organic polymer encapsulation of the pigment imparts exceptional chemical resistance to the metallic effect and indeed can be made to meet the International Qualicoat standard for architectural powder coatings if required.
The encapsulated pigments can be either bonded or dry blended with the powder coat system.
