Paint Dispersing Agents Market: Wet and Stabilize Pigments
- Dispersing agents are used to stabilize and wet pigments and other particles within paints, coatings and ink formulations. Dispersing agents provide color strength, viscosity stability, gloss, and prevent sedimentation of particles.
- Dispersing agents assist the suspension of solid compounding material in a liquid medium and stabilize the produced dispersion. An efficient dispersing agent can perform pigment dispersion, wetting, and stabilizing too. Different types of dispersing agents are employed depending on the nature of the paint. For instance, in water-based paints, polyphosphates, polyacrylates, and styrene-maleinates are utilized, while lecytine, low molecular weight modified alkyd and polyester resins, and fatty acid derivatives are employed in solvent-based and solvent-free paints.
