The article explains the process of pigment dispersion by which nonsoluble particles are uniformly incorporated into a liquid phase and stabilized against settling or reagglomeration. It notes that a pigment with an optimum particle size for the intended application is created by the pigment manufacturer. It further states that uniform pigments in the coating is ensured in a proper dispersion as well as maximize hiding power.
