Dispersion: theory and practice in coatings production

22 September 2020


If any process deserves to be called the key factor in coatings manufacturing, it is surely dispersing. Pigments that settle down in a paint can instead of staying in suspension can be extremely annoying. To achieve this and other key properties, there are many parameters that need to be considered during the dispersion process: correct wetting, mechanical destruction, stabilisation of the flocculation, and heat management. A good dispersion will only be obtained if all of these points are addressed properly. This seminar will show you how the various parameters are inter-related and how they can be influenced. Naturally, it will also feature practical examples of various coating and ink applications to illustrate the most important lessons.
