Durable, Long-Lasting Aluminum Flake Coatings

Transmet’s Aluminum Flake Coatings will hold up in terms of both quality and longevity. 100+ million square feet of roofing surface has been protected by Transmet’s aluminum flake.


Transmet Corporation Aluminum Flakes are rapidly solidified in our proprietary melt spinning process. The flakes are very uniform in size and shape.


Our flakes have a high surface area to mass ratio, making them a safer alternative to working with explosive powders. Standard Transmet Aluminum Flake is 99.9% pure aluminum as cast and contains about 7,000,000 flakes per pound. Each flake will be about the thickness of aluminum foil.

Our Highly-Reflective Aluminum Flakes


We deliver an incredible reflective quality even 30 years later for any commercial roofing project. See these buyers who promote and warranty a 30 year roof with our product – Five Star Commercial Roofing as well as ACR1.  These roofers all call our flakes “chips.” These chips outlast other materials like acrylic, aluminized asphalt and brown granules that end up cracking and peeling over a few years.
