New premium gold powders for wood and plastic

  • Optimized production processes lead to highest brilliance and opacity
  • Change of container shape facilitates handling and recycling
  • No lubricants of animal origin

Hartenstein, 09.04.2021 - With the new STANDART® PREMIOR Gold range, the effect pigment manufacturer ECKART presents a new level of gold brilliance and hiding power.

The coarse leafing Cornflake pigments are available in the two gold metallic shades Pale Gold (STANDART® PREMIOR Gold 2040) and Rich Pale Gold (STANDART® PREMIOR Gold 3040).

The exceptional brilliance and opacity are due to optimized grinding and polishing procedures during the production process. The complete absence of lubricants of animal origin is another reason why the new gold powders are already very popular in many regions.

The change in the packaging form - the powder is filled into a light PE bag, which is inserted into the steel drum - ensures easy handling and counteracts contamination of the drum. It can thus be disposed of or reused in a more environmentally friendly way.

STANDART® PREMIOR Gold is primarily used for interior wood and plastic coatings to give decorative objects, furniture and other furnishings a modern and luxurious touch.
