Leafing Pigments

The ability of aluminium pigment particles to align themselves parallel to both the substrate and surface of a coating film as it dries is called 'Leafing'.



This phenomenon is a result of the stearic acid utilized during the production of the aluminium pigments coupled with the correct set of physical conditions necessary to support leafing.


This orientation at the surface provides the brilliance and performance characteristics required in most maintenance and trade sales coatings.
