A combination of brilliance, metallic effects and opacity are the characteristics of the new Silvershine 400 series from Eckart. This was achieved by the advancement of the silver dollar technology: novel grinding processes, a very narrow particle size distribution plus the careful selection of high-quality aluminum grit produce highly brilliant silver colors and an excellent flop behavior, ranging from smooth and structureless effects to classy sparkle. The fact that the fine and medium-fine silver dollar pigments are almost free of scattering properties contributes to Silvershine 400’s optical properties. Even when tinted with organic pigments, the metallic character remains. Suitable applications for the solvent based Silvershine 400 series are high-end coatings and premium-quality ink systems, e.g. for vehicles, consumer electronics, and household appliances, but also for the graphic arts industry. www.eckart.com
