Achieving product stability is a critical aspect of ink formulation. Modern inks are typically colloidal suspensions of multiple components in an organic or aqueous continuous phase. The functionality of the finished product relies on maintaining suspended ingredients in a dispersed state, for the life time of the ink, under all the conditions that will be encountered. In this webinar we discuss the key factors governing dispersion stability (resistance to aggregation and sedimentation) and the various options and tools available for enhancing and predicting it.
