Aluminium pigments - ECKART

On the basis of aluminium pigments, ECKART offers a complete product range for every area of application; this ranges from powders, pastes and pellets to dispersions and printing inks. In subsequent stages, the pigments are classified according to the relevant application and then further refined. Atomised aluminium powder is deformed and broken down during the wet or dry-milling process to form flakes.


Powder - ECKART

Notes on processing Like all materials in powder form, aluminium powders can form explosive dust/air mixtures when they come into contact with air. Take measures to prevent electrostatic charging. Do not use vacuum cleaners to remove residue. Avoid any contact with moisture.


Pastes - ECKART

In order to achieve this, it is important to pre-disperse the metallic pigments in the solvent, adding a suitable wetting agent to further enhance the dispersion. Notes on processing:The complete dispersion of the metallic pigments in the coating is a pre-requisite to achieve optimum effect formation and a uniform finish.
