The AQUAVEX pellets contain a low foaming surfactant that contributes to their low dusting and ease of dispersion in water. The pigments are low VOC and are treated chemically to enhance the stability in aqueous printing inks. This range of water compatible aluminum pigments provide a wide range of aesthetic effects and are available as leafing or non-leafing grades.
The SIL-O-WET family of pigments are carried in IPA and have been treated to offer an economic aluminum pigment stabilized for use in water based systems.
ETERNABRITE® and SPARKLEBRITE™:
Typically used for solvent based applications, the ETERNABRITEand SPARKLEBRITE grades have some limited use in water based systems. These pigments have not been treated for use in aqueous inks and for increased stability the AQUAVEX and SIL-O-WET grades should be used.
