Pigment Dispersion & Stabilization: Optimization Tips with Practical Examples

54 Day(s) left to register

Tuesday Apr 16, 2024

Say goodbye to your pigment dispersion & stabilization issues by applying proven time-savers & pragmatic procedures in daily practice.

Jochum Beetsma will help you avoid unfocused trails with guidance on how to:
  • Read Technical Data Sheets better to ease ingredient selection
  • Select additives as per pigment & define the optimal dispersant amount needed
  • Deduce the best formulation strategy with real examples (TiO2, carbon black…)
  • Check pigment dispersion quality & stability in practice

Why should you attend?

Understanding theory is essential but not always enough for fast troubleshooting... Go one step further theory & boost your pigment dispersion skills with day-to-day practical methods ! Join the course and:

  • Fine-tune your ingredients selection by better reading Technical Data Sheets – What critical information is available? What is missing?

  • Achieve good pigment dispersion in paint by knowing how to determine when wetting agent is needed (and when not!), how to choose stabilizers &/or define optimal amount of dispersant...

  • Increase flocculation stability and dispersion quality by giving more attention to anchor sites & anchoring groups, rheology and to solvents, additives...that could be displacers, etc.

  • Avoid unfocussed trials with a better understanding of how to link theory to daily practice

    The analysis of the real life examples was extremely good, as well as the analysis of the information included in the TDS.

    Melissa M. , from Cabot Corporation

    Very good! It gives better understanding of science behind the use of various pigments and dispersants.

    Jeffrey K. , from Sartomer

    This course gave clear explanation of physical phenomena involved in pigment dispersing.

    Lorenzo R. , from FlintGroup Italia SpA

    Excellent! I'm currently working on pigment dispersions for the cosmetic industry and this course was useful to understand better the needed raw materials for pigment dispersions and the functionalitu of each of them.

    Audrey L. , from INTERPOLYMER Sarl

    Very good explanation on the estimation of dispersant needed for a given pigment. Nice walk through the TDS so we can look at them more critically.

    Julio C. , from Hewlett Packard Co

    Very good explanation on what type of dispersant is needed for the pigment used. Also that not always is a wetting agent needed.

    Charlene P. , from General Paint

    Very helpful to calculate level of dispersant required!

    Lisa D. , from Ferro Corporation

    It was an excellent demonstration how to put theoretical knowledge into everyday practice.

    Ann-Charlotte H. , from Engwall o. Claesson AB

    Excellent! I did not expect a so huge variation in properties of raw materials. I hope now that we can optimize our systems to be more compatible.
