Examples are Colloïds, a substance microscopically dispersed evenly throughout another substance, Emulsions, a mixture of two or more immiscible (un-blendable) liquids and Suspensions, a heterogeneous fluid containing solid particles that are sufficiently large for sedimentation. The making of a dispersion is called dispersing. Paint In paint technology a dispersion is a mixture of binding materials.


Grindometers Fineness of Grind Gauges

  • Standards: ASTM D1084, ASTM D1210, ASTM D1316, DIN 53203, DIN EN ISO NF21524, FTMS 141 a, ISO 1524, M.4411.1, NF T 30-046, ГОСТ 6589

  • Grindometers or Fineness of Grind Gauges are precision instruments to determine particle size and fineness of many materials like paints, lacquers, pigments, filler, chocolate etc..
