What Makes Pigment Dispersion Important in Paint Production?

Quality paints primarily rely on pigment dispersions in the manufacturing process. Without proper dispersion of pigments, the paint will not hold up and maintain the expected colour standards. Pigments are insoluble particles that impart colour to paint and other materials. Proper pigment and additive selection are vital to ensure the finished paint or coating effectively displays the required colour.

There are different ways that pigments are dispersed in materials, including paints. Hence, understanding the properties and chemistry of the pigment is vital for knowing how it will be distributed. Properly dispersed pigments are crucial to the manufacture of good quality paints. Some of the essential properties that are required for good pigment dispersion are listed below:

  • Stability

Pigments need to be chosen that have good lightfastness in order for the paint to have a resounding colour that does not fade with time.

  • Viscosity

Another significant factor for paint and coatings is even thickness. Lower viscosity will ensure better distribution of pigment dispersions.

  • Bright Hue

The pigments used in dispersions for paint manufacturing are chosen for their bright hues. The pigments, varnishes and other ingredients in the paint must dry to give a glossy finish in order to achieve the greatest vibrancy of colour.

  • Optimal Pigment Size

Smaller particle size of pigment generally provides better transparency. The finer the grind of the pigment the greater the colour strength that can be achieved from a given quantity of pigment.

  • Customization

One of the defining features of buying pigment dispersions from a company such as ours is that they can be customised, such as by specifying the shade and strength needed to suit a particular application.
