Introducing TUFFLAKE® Premier 018 Aluminum Pigment from Silberline

Published on 2010-11-04. Author : SpecialChem

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 one of the best in the automotive industry.

When compared with similar particle size TUFFLAKE, as well as competitive aluminum pigments, 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

TUFFLAKE Premier pigments are available in a standard package size of 20 kilograms or 44 pounds.
