Title: Pigment interactions in Coatings and Colorants – Physical Chemical Principles
Author: Jadel Baptista, email: firstname.lastname@example.org, Phone: (401) 250-5752
Abstract: Pigment dispersions in coatings and colorants are thermodynamically unstable systems. In order to maintain the stability of the system, formulators must use select additives which in conjunction with the proper pigment selection and processing conditions are critical in achieving the desired performance of the finished coating as well as it’s “Metastability”.
The interactions of one pigment or combination of pigments with additives, resins, and solvents, can modify the coatings performance properties and therefore must be considered. Understanding the different pigment types and properties, and the concepts involved on these interactions, can help formulators avoid potential problems.
This paper will focus on the interaction between dispersing agents, solvents, resins, and thickeners with the pigments, and the physical chemical principles involved in these interactions. The theory behind flooding, floating, settling, and gelling will also be discussed.
How long is your Pool Liner expected to Last?
As summer approaches, we naturally start to think of swimming! Pools will be opened shortly and certain questions seem to pop up, such as, how long will my pool liner last? Vinyl pool liners typically have warranties of 20-30 years, however they more realistically last anywhere from 5-10 years. Reasons for the liner degrading include punctures in the lining, pool maintenance, improper installation, and of course, colour degradation!
There are certain high-performance pigments (Indanthrone Blue range) that are designed to withstand the chemicals from a pool and maintain that bright blue colour. Click here to browse these Blue pigments (Blue A2RU/A2RX, A3R, A3RN). These products are available worldwide.
