How do I select a pigment dispersant?

Mike Peck Mike Peck
Senior Research Chemist

Selecting the right dispersant-pigment combination can be very challenging, as pigments vary widely from source to source and region to region, even within the same color index number. To help our customers save time and testing, we’ve developed an online product selection tool, F.A.Z.T., that instantly recommends a dispersant and calculates a starting point formulation based on a choice of a specific pigment grade from over 1800 products. Developed from empirical testing, pigment properties, and theoretical understanding, the F.A.Z.T. helps a formulator select a pigment dispersant and accelerate product development.
