Ink, Pigment, and Paint
Ink and pigments are used in everything from commercial printing presses to textiles, from powder coating to household paints and stains. As such, the material behavior of ink and pigments is crucial to a wide variety of industries and applications. The analytical expertise offered by Particle Technology Labs can help manufacturers in these industries ensure the quality and consistency of their products.
Material Behavior – Analysis of the particulate that make up ingredients of a formulation play a vital role in determining material behaviors, including longevity, smudge resistance, and ink application and adherence among others. Particle size and characterization analyses provide invaluable information toward optimum performance.
Shape, Size, and Concentration – The particle size, shape, and concentration of the ingredients and additives within a final product can impact the coverage, vibrancy, and longevity of ink, pigments, and paints. The analytical services provided by Particle Technology Labs can provide insight into these material qualities.
From Raw Material to Finished Product – Particle Technology Labs has worked with industry experts through each stage of the manufacturing process; from raw material suppliers to formulation chemists and end users. The particle size and characterization services offered by Particle Technology Labs assist in troubleshooting and verifying materials, providing accurate test results and ensuring the quality and integrity of materials used in the ink, paint, and pigment industries.
