Adsorption of biobased block copolymers on nano-pigments
Design of polymeric dispersants from chitin, lignin, alginates, …
- Anchoring on the pigment surfaces
- Stabilizing the nano dispersion in polar or apolar solvents
Dispersing agents for making nano-pigment dispersions can be purchased commercially or can be specifically designed and synthesized by ChemStream to guarantee the best possible dispersion stability and tailor-made properties.
The milling of a magenta pigment dispersion
The subsequent translation of the developed dispersions into a functional (inkjet) ink is one of the main domains of expertise of ChemStream.
In recent years ChemStream has done a lot of research into the development of its own dispersants based on bio-based building blocks. Several side-streams such as chitin, lignin, etc. were validated into a broad range of renewable ink components.
