Grinding of pigment agglomerates and aggregates close to their primary particle sizes after dispersion process. See Also Controlled flocculation
Agglomeration of previously grinded and dispersed pigments as flocculates due to the unstable dispersion process. See Also Flocculate
Pigment particles undergo controlled flocculation with the help of dispersion additives that hold on to the pigment particles over their pigment-loving groups. Bigger particle sizes are obtained compared to deflocculation; however, “hard precipitation” tendency of the coating decreases. Controlled flocculation is a widely used technique during dispersion of primer pigments and fillers.
