With over 100 years of experience, Carlfors Bruk being a manufacturer of Aluminium Pigments and Flakes.
Aluminium pigment pastes are widely used in numerous applications for paints such as Roof Coatings, Marine Coatings, Protective Coatings, Anti-Corrosion Coatings, Decorative Coatings and Industrial Coatings. Depending on the lubricant used in the milling process the aluminium flakes obtain different characteristics. There are in general two different types of aluminium pigments, leafing grades and non-leafing grades. The leafing grades float on the surface of the coating film and the non-leafing grades are uniformly distributed in the coating film. For the Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) industry or the Light Weight Concrete (LWC) industry we have a complete range of technical aluminium grades. Carlfors metallic pellets for plastics are supplied either as Silver Dollar or corn flake pigment types and offer the user dust free dosing. The pigments are supplied in a wax carrier which has a wide compatibility with various polymer systems however other carriers are available on request.
Since many years Carlfors and Nymco are partners and Nymco is the exclusive distributor for Italian market.
