Aluminium Bright Silver Powder for use in Resins and Water Based Paints.
The only way you can get a bright silver shimmering effect in resin. Supplied as an easy to stir in powder.
This powdered aluminium has been surface coated to make it compatible with many mediums including resins and water based paints.
It creates a bright silver effect that can never be achieved with pearlescent pigments.
This is a pigment that we use in many of our metallic paints as it generates excellent opacity and creates an unrivalled metallic effect that cannot be achieved without it.
Using this pigment in resin
In resin you need only add a small amount by weight of the resin. 2-3% of this powder is adequate to give thin layers a shimmering bright silver appearance.
As with most pigment powders the particles may tend to settle while the resin cures. It is best used it in thin layers or in top layers of resin.
Avoid breathing dust and caution
This pigment generates dust when handled. Care should be taken not to breathe the dust (careful handling will reduce dust generation). Use a fabric dust mask that you can buy at any hardware store. If handling larger quantities (more than normal arts and crafts requirements) then a dust extraction system is required.
Dusts of this powder in air can be flammable at certain concentrations. In small quantities there is no significant risk but avoid generating excess dust and don't use the powder near an open heat source. This product cannot be air freighted (for road freight only). Being coated aluminium it is a lot less flammable than normal aluminium powder.
