Pigments are compounds that impart colors to various substrates. They improve hiding power, opacity, fastness, weather & chemical resistance, and durability of paints & coatings, plastics, and printing inks. Aluminum pigments are a special type of pigments that provide silver color with excellent metallic effects. Pigments are broadly used to offer lustrous, glossy, and shiny effects. Aluminum pigments impart the metallic effect by scattering light on rough surfaces or reflecting light on a smooth surface. Usage of aluminum pigments helps provide metallic appearance to products, thus enhancing their esthetic features. Aluminum pigments are available in different shapes and sizes such as lamellar flakes (cornflakes), lenticular flakes (silver-dollars), and vacuum metallized pigments (VMPs). Furthermore, aluminum pigments are classified into two groups – leafing and non-leafing – depending on wetting properties.
