DISPERSING AGENTS

  • IEMOL DISPERSING AGENTS :

A Solid material dispersed in a liquid requires an additive to make the dispersion process easier & more stable this is the role of the dispersing agent, or dispersant. Dispersants deflocculate solids & thus significantly reduce the viscosity of a dispersion or paste. As a result of this effect, Solid loading the amount of dispersible powdered material can be increased accordingly. The dispersion phase is possibly the most time & energy consuming stage of the production process. This is due to the different surface tensions of the liquids & the solids. A dispersing additive is necessary to produce stable formulations & ensure storage stability (no viscosity instability, no separation).
