ACF-105/Special Effects was specifically developed for its visual appearance, but it still provides the same strength and anti-corrosive properties as all of our glass flake products.
Typical uses: Our ACF-105 glass flake was developed for the effects market. We were able to discover an extremely specific particle size distribution, capable of providing a refractive index desired by numerous consumer markets. Our ACF-105 has the ideal aspect ratio, providing a glimmer effect like that of a diamond. Typically, ACF-105 is used as a substrate and is coated with metal alloy or compound, such as Silver or Titanium Dioxide to produce a pigment/product that is truly remarkable.
Applications for ACF 105 include:
|Product Designation||Nominal Flake Thickness (Microns)||Bulk Density (lbs/ft3)||Particle Size Distribution (Microns)||Surface Treatment||Packaging lb (kg)|
|ACF-105||5 ± 1||26 ± 5||< 150 (0-20%)
|None||Kraft bag 44lb (20kg)|
|ACFT*-105||5 ± 1||26 ± 5||Same as ACF-100||Silane see below||Sams as ACF-100|
*Resin Compatibility of Standard Treatments, T1 – Polyurethane: Product code ACF-T1-100, T2 – Vinylester: Product code ACF-T2-100, T3 – Epoxy: Product code ACF-T3-100, T4 – Polyester: Product code ACF-T4-100
Tailored silane treatments may be specified. Ameriflake prides itself on the ability to custom engineer its flake products via manipulations of flake composition, flake physical dimensions, and/or flake surface treatment
