Without colors, everyday life would be drab and boring. But today, colors are much more than the visual impression allows us to imagine. Colors can completely change the visual appearance as well as the tactile properties of products. Materials are found in buildings today that look like marble, granite or wood, but are actually ceramic tiles. Functional coatings require the formulation of colored organic or inorganic pigments and preferably ecological solvents, binders and fillers. In the textiles sector, it is also required that they be anti-allergenic. In addition, mixing and dispersing machines, along with agitator bead mills of various designs, are required for the production of these dispersions. For development and quality assurance, the characterization of particle size, color intensity, transparency or glossis are essential.
During the Dispersion Days symposium, various developments and trends as well as the needs for the practice of the future are being discussed. The meeting should help bring experts in various fields from universities and colleges, institutes and industry closer together.
The symposium is commonly organized by the Institute for Particle Technology (IPAT), the European Center for Dispersion Technologies (EZD), Malvern Instruments and NETZSCH-Feinmahltechnik GmbH.
