TIGER 2nd Generation Bonded Metallics?

What are TIGER 2nd Generation Bonded Metallics?

TIGER Drylac Metallics are made with our 2nd Generation Bonding technology, which is exclusive to TIGER Drylac® Metallics. This State-of-the-art system bonding of metallic pigments to the base material offers unique advantages over conventional dry blending. This process features:

  • An even distribution of pigments for a more uniform metallic finish
  • Unparalleled Batch-to-batch consistency
    • Low effect variation at different applications
  • Resistance to particle segregation during transportation and storage
    • Low reject rates & fewer application issues
  • Easy to spray powder
    • Less separation of Powder and Pigment during application (fewer charging issues)
    • Higher Transfer Efficiency
  • A recycling consistent material, making the powder suitable for reclaim

TIGER 2ND Generation Bonded Metallics vs Liquid Metallic Paint

TIGER Metallic Powder Coatings

  • The metallic is bonded to the surface of the powder particle
  • This process helps to place some metallic particles parallel to the substrate but there are also particles not parallel or even perpendicular to the substrate
  • This creates a distinct difference in appearance from liquid that is difficult to recreate in ordinary powder coatings

Liquid Metallics

  • For the most part, the binders in liquid systems are lower molecular weight; smaller molecules and lower viscosities 
  • The liquid system’s low viscosity and the solvent evaporation process will orient the metallic; push it to the surface parallel to the substrate (it lies flat)
  • If metallic’s are not involved, liquid coating are easy to make smooth but hard to build film and create certain textures
