Pigment Particle Size and Hiding Power

Particle Characterization

Particle size is intimately related to hiding power in pigments. Due to its speed and wide size measurement range, laser diffraction is an ideal tool for tracking the grinding process and therefore controlling the resulting pigment performance. Laser diffraction results rapidly tell the manufacturer when a product is at the right particle size or distribution width and, therefore, allows optimum use of manufacturing equipment.

Pigment Particle Size and Hiding Power
DescriptionPigment size can be readily measured by laser diffraction. This measurement requires less time, training and effort than a color strength measurement and provides useful information for the process engineer. By rapidly identifying when a pigment is sufficiently ground, use of process equipment is optimized and profits are maximized.
