Aluminum Flakes

 

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

Transmet’s flakes have a high surface area to mass ratio, making them a safer alternative to working with explosive powders. Standard Transmet Aluminum Flake is 99.93% pure aluminum as cast and contain about 7,000,000 flakes per pound. Each flake will be about the thickness of aluminum foil.

Applications for Aluminum Flakes
  • Feedstock for chemical reactions
  • Fuel cells and batteries
  • Exothermic applications
  • Binder agent for master alloy briquetting
  • Drain cleaners
  • Thermal and electrical conductivity enhancement in plastics
  • Granular alternative for highly reflective roofing applications

Details on how Aluminum Flakes can benefit chemical reactions can be found in the article Shape Makes a Difference.

For more information about Transmet Aluminum Flakes in highly reflective roofing applications you may visit the U.S. Department of Energy article or the Highly Reflective Roof Coating page.
