With aluminum flakes, it’s all about the high surface to weight ratio. With a thickness of 25 microns and length and width dimensions 600 or 1000 × 1000 microns chemical reactions are more predictable.
Aluminum flakes are safer than aluminum powders. They are rated as non-hazardous to handle. See the “Shape Makes A Difference” article. That’s where Transmet’s Aluminum Flakes are a game changer. With Transmet, you can ensure that each aluminum flake comes in the correct dimensions to provide stability for every project.
With a platelet-like shape, these aluminum flakes are sturdy despite being the same thickness as aluminum foil. Transform your chemical process with our industry-best Aluminum Flakes.
