Metallic Paint

  • Jan W. GoochAffiliated with

n Paint which, on application, gives a film with a metallic appearance. This effect is normally produced by the incorporation of fine flakes of such metals as copper, bronze or aluminum. The aluminum used may be leafing or nonleafing, the former giving a far more brilliant metallic effect. These metals can be used in tinted or colored media to give polychromatic finishes. Also known as Metallic Pigmented Paint.
