How to Select a Dispermat

A disperser is required when solid particles are dispersed in a liquid creating a colloidal suspension. If the solid is easily dissolved like sugar in water, a simple air or electric mixer is ok.

Why is Proper Dispersion Important for Paint Manufacturing?

If solids, especially pigments, are not broken down into smaller particle sizes and spread evenly throughout the liquid base during the paint manufacturing process, the result is a poor paint quality.
