The small size of Fusaike Colloidal Silica particles allows them to be used as a dispersant in some applications. This is particularly useful to formulate highly concentrated, long-term stable, surfactant-free dispersions of pigments.
Benefits when using Fusaike Colloidal Silica
1. Surfactant-free pigment paste
2. Easy to use
3. Safe handling
4. Not shear-sensitive
5. Stable suspension
7. Improved wettability
How it works
Dispersing is the creation of a uniform and consistent liquid formulation that resists settling or clumping through improved separation of particles. By improving the separation of particles, a uniform and consistent liquid dispersion that resists settling or clumping is created.
Thanks to consistent particle size and charge, colloidal silica is an ideal dispersing agent in a number of applications.
The particles act as a physical spacer, preventing re-agglomeration, and help keep the dispersed material separated by adsorbing on the surface.
