Paints & Pigments

Silverson high shear mixers are widely used in the manufacture of paints, inks and coatings.  The high shear action of the rotor/stator workhead can rapidly disintegrate and dissolve resins and polymers, disperse pigments and other raw materials including “functional” ingredients.

Typical applications include:

  • Redispersion of filter cake
  • Manufacture of coding and marking inks
  • Dispersion of Titanium Dioxide
  • Dispersion of Bentonite
  • Dispersion of Fumed Silica (Aerosil®)
  • Polymer/Pigment dispersion in the textile industry

For more specific information on these applications, please see the reports below.
