No. 44,590, filed June 8, 1970, entitled Method for Decorating Surfaces and now abandoned.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION This invention relates to a method for depositing solid, highly reflectant, non-leafing, sparkling, colored, macro," polymer-coated metal flakes on any primed or unprimed substrate, e.g., styrofoam, metal, wood, plastic, paper, which can support a film.

Colored metal flakes in the macro size range have heretofore been limited to application from conventional, heavy-duty spray equipment, or have had to be roller coated, screen printed, cast, flocked, or extruded.

It is an object of this invention to apply, solid, highly reflectant, non-leaflng colored, macro" size metal flakes from a manually-operated aerosol spray can. By the practice of this invention, students, artists, home handymen, housewives, auto enthusiasts, and the like can apply dramatic glitter coatings to numerous substrates and can obtain esthetically pleasing effects previously unavailable except by using heavy-duty spray equipment.

Prior to this invention, it was known in the art to apply micro" leafing metal particles from manuallyoperated spray cans. The formulations used by Felsher et al (Paint and Varnish Products, May 1963, at p. 45), by Herzka (International Encyclopedia of Pressurized Packaging." Pergamon Press. I966. at pgs. 545,546), and by Stetz et al (U. S. Pat. No. 2,731,436) create a mirror-like surface by the use ofleafing" metal flakes, usually in the size range of 200-325 mesh (00029-00017 inch)..Coatings made by aerosol application of these formulations feel smooth, show a decided tendency to crock, and become dull after a short time. Stephens ct al(U. S. Pat. No. 3,234,038) teach the use of l-200 mesh (0.0058-00029 inch) nonleafing aluminum flakes in a formulation applied from conventional heavy-duty spray equipment to a primed surface and then baked. A transparent lacquer overcoat is required. The compositions do not adhere satisfactorily to unprimed surfaces and are relatively dull grey in appearance.

Coatings made according to the present invention appear sparkling and glittery and feel rough to the touch. Good adhesion to unprimed surfaces, e.g., metal, wood, plastic, paper, is obtained by the simple process of spraying the glitter coating composition from a manually-operated aerosol can. No overcoat is required, since the glitter coatings show virtually no tendency to peel, crack, or rub off.

The effect produced by the solid, highly reflectant, non-leafing, polymer-coated metal flakes of this invention is thought to reside in propelling the flakes onto a substrate in a random, unoriented fashion. Rapid evaporation of volatile solvent from the vehicle results in the flakes being embedded randomly in the resin from the vehicle system. Each flake is thought to be coated with a thin layer of resin. Part of the brilliance and sparkle of the coatings of this invention is thought to be due to reflectance of light through the coating on each metal flake.

The size of the macro metal flakes used in the practice of this invention may be varied according to the effect desired. Use of a larger size flake gives a more dramatic appearance to the substrate sprayed than use of smaller flakes. The size of the metal flake may vary from about 0.004 inch X 0.002 inchX 0.00032 inch to about 0.008 inch X 0.008 inch X 0.00] inch. Flakes in the range from 0.004 inch X 0.002 inch X 0.00045 inch to 0.008 inch X 0.008 inch X 0.00045 inch are preferred. Tolerances are within i 5 percent in both surface dimensions and thickness.

Metal flakes particularly preferred for the purpose of this invention are precision-cut, regular shapes of highly polished aluminum foil coated with a variety of coatings, depending on the type of colored flake desired. The epoxy coated type are aluminum foil flakes coated with a pigmented, or unpigmented, baked epoxy resin. The vinyl coated type are aluminum foil flakes coated with a pigmented, or unpigmented, vinyl resin. The nitrocellulose coated type are aluminum foil flakes coated with a pigmented, or unpigmented, nitrocellulose type lacquer.

Colors of the flakes include the following, or mixtures thereof:

Bright Silver Purple Sand Prussian Blue Pale GOlCl Royal Blue Dark GOld Medium Blue Golden Fiesta Aqua Chartreuse Emerald Golden Orange Lavender Bright Orange Brilliant Copper Apricot Antique Brown Brilliant Red Black Fuchsia Vehicle systems which have successfully been used in this method include conventional acrylic resins, e.g., F-lO [a poly(methyl methacrylate) (Rohm and Haas Co.)]; alkyd resins, e.g., vinyltoluene soya alkyd; methyl cellulose; and the like. The polymer used in the vehicle system may be any polymer which is not reactive with the coating on the metal flakes. The vehicle composition is limited only by the strength of the solvents used. Solvents used in the aerosol formulations should be of low solvent strength. However, this does not preclude the use of minor percentages of strong solvents. Very strong solvents are to be avoided, as they could possibly solubilize and extract colorants from the coated aluminum flakes.

Propellants used include both halogenated types and hydrocarbon types'of conventional aerosol propellants.

In the examples infra there will be shown a basel consisting of the metal flakes and vehicle therefor. This base is delivered to an open aerosol can, suitable agitators are added (spherical marbles or rivets are adequate); the spray valve is crimped onto the aerosol can, and the propellant is injected into the can. While low temperature filling is possible, the injection method is more suited to the practice of this invention.

Conventional, cylindrical aerosol cans of any size can be used for the practice of this invention; 4 ounce to 16 ounce cans are preferred.

The velocity at which the glitter coating composition is exhausted from the spray can is a critical aspect of successful application of compositions containing macro flakes from a spray container. Conventional sprayheads apparently confine the mixing and atomization of spray compositions to a localized region adjacent to the nozzle outlet. An unsatisfactory spray pattern often results, particularly with liquid products containing dispersed solid particles or flakes, e.g., specialty paints containing flakes of metallic, plastic, or glass glitter. The particles in these products apparently serve as'nuclei for agglomeration of liquid in relatively large droplets which collect in the area between the sprayhead and the valve mounting cap. As exhaustion of the aerosol from the can is continued, the bulk of collected fluid is carried by entrainment as a blotch, spatter, or unsightly non-uniform area on the substrate being sprayed. These poor results become even more poor as the size of the suspended flakes or particles increases.

A sprayhe ad suitable for propulsion ofmacro particles of this invention requires the incorporation of an elongated expansion chamber upstream of the nozzle orifice. The diameter of the expansion chamber should ideally be significantly larger than that of the passageway leading'to the valve from a dip tube or other means for conveying glitter coating composition to the passageway of the sprayhead.

The length of the expansion chamber should preferably be several times its diameter. For example, a sprayhead incorporating an expansion chamber at least five times as long as its diameter not only gives a spray pattern of greatly improved uniformity, but also gives increased product flow rate for a given nozzle orifice diameter and propellant pressure.

Thus, in the operation of this invention, the glitter coating composition and propellant mixture undergoes the steps of l flow through a passageway of substantially uniform cross'sectional area, (2) expansion within an elongated expansion chamber, and (3) acceleration through a constricted orifice. The glitter coating issues from the orifice in the form of a finelydivided well-mixed spray.

In a particularly useful sprayhead, the expansion chamber is placed angularly with respect to the passageway of the sprayhead. Glitter coating composition first passes through the passageway of substantially uniform cross-sectional area. The abrupt change of direction which the composition undergoes as it enters the expansion chamber induces a swirling flow which promotes intimate mixing of flakes, vehicle, and vaporizing propellant as the composition passes through the expansion chamber prior to issuing from the constricted orifice as a very fine spray.

Dimensions of a typical sprayhead which gives results useful for the purpose of this invention are:

Inlet slot 0.060 inch X 0.125 inch Chamber 0.112 inch diameter X 0.625 inch long Orifice 0.032 inch diameter While the invention is not limited to specific sprayhead slots and orifices, the following sprayheads, manufactured by Newman-Green, Inc., have been found to be suitable:

Valves useful in the practice of this invention include B and R type valves manufactured by Newman-Green, Inc. of Addison, Illinois. Valves denoted R-10-l28 and B-l4-l0-l28 are especially useful, although other valves of these series are operative.

When larger sized metal flakes are used, the use of a vapor tap valve assembly is preferred, as this assembly substantially eliminates the possibility of the valve dip tube becoming clogged with metal flakes. The vapor tap feature is available on both B and R type valves, supra.

To further ensure elimination of clogging the valve dip tube with macro flakes, the dip tube should terminate slightly above the level normally occupied by a compacted sludge of metal flakes of the coating composition which forms between successive usages of the aerosol spray can. Negligible loss of material results from this arrangement of the dip tube.

Before spraying the product of this invention, the coating composition is agitated thoroughly by shaking the aerosol can. The spherical marbles or rivets charged to the can operate as agitating means. Label directions on the can should indicate the need for frequent shaking to assure that equal aliquots of macro" flakes and vehicle are discharged throughout the use of a given spray can.

In the practice of the invention, aerosol formulations are charged into the aerosol can, the sprayhead is affixed, the aerosol can is shaken to ensure distribution of the contents, the sprayhead is pressed, and the valve assembly is actuated to deliver the product onto the desired substrata.
