Silberline Introduces Tufflake Premier 018 Aluminum Pigment
November 4, 2010
Tufflake Premier represents the next generation of Silberline's Tufflake pigments.
Automotive OEM coatings containing aluminum pigments are subject to tremendous shear forces. These mechanical forces can have the tendency of dulling the metallic appearance of the final coating by breaking and deforming the individual aluminum flakes. Silberline's Tufflake line of "circulation-resistant" pigments is specifically engineered to withstand these mechanical forces and maintain their targeted appearance. Tufflake Premier is the next generation of Tufflake pigments from Silberline. The overall brightness, metallic travel, degradation resistance, smooth patina and improved Bell-Bell orientation makes Tufflake Premier pigment well suited for the demands of the automotive industry. Tufflake Premier exhibits excellent degradation resistance for automotive OEM; improved orientation and brighter face in Bell-Bell applications; improved orientation with brighter face and deeper travel in air assisted siphon applications; and Tufflake Premier pigments are available in a standard package size of 20 kilograms or 44 pounds.
