Abstract: Dispersants – Why and How to Use Them

Dispersants bring a unique value proposition to coatings.  The primary purpose of dispersing agents is to gain the optimal value of a pigment in a coating (minimum concentration with desired performance/properties and stability).  How dispersants function in a coating and the advantages of their use will be explained in this talk.  In addition, guidance will be provided on the selection of dispersing agents, optimization of the level of usage, process considerations, and examples of applications will be discussed.  The goal of the talk is to provide the audience with a deeper insight to this additive technology and a good basis of understanding with which to incorporate it into future coatings applications.
