The sparkle effect of aluminium pigments

With a clear vision to produce aluminium pigments using entirely new, revolutionary and environmentally friendly technology, Metaflake Ltd was founded in 1996 in Anstruther, Scotland. Metaflake manufactures high-quality aluminium pigments for the coatings, inks and plastics markets. They have taken a radical approach to a conservative industry, developing their own unique, environment-friendly and highly innovative technology, giving Metaflake a clear lead in their chosen markets.

Water milled process

With an innovative water-based approach, they make it possible to offer significant cost savings for customers, combined with the unique position to deliver odour-free pastes and pellets.

The water milled process brings the following advantages:

  • Completely solvent-free process – excellent water compatibility and stability in water-based coatings and inks;
  • High quality “Silver Dollar” pigments with high brilliancies and opacity;
  • Complete range for water and solvent-based and plastics;
  • An efficient process with competitive prices;
  • Water-based and environmentally friendly production.
  • Metaflake pigment preparations are based on very bright “non leaving” silver dollar pigments. These pigments are used in a wide range of coatings and inks on a water and solvent basis and plastics.
