Dispersing agent

Dispersing Ingredients or Chemicals 

Description of Dispersing agent: dispersing agents are ingredients added to a formulation to enhance the separation of particles and prevent them from clumping together. Dispersing agents, also called dispersants, are used in a wide range of industries, from paints to pharmaceuticals and from cleaning to personal care. These products typically are surfactants and a few examples of dispersants are Ssucate DOE70, Isopropylamine DS and Ceteareth-29. Dispersants are commonly used in formulations that are a suspension. They help stabilize these formulations by preventing the aggregation of the suspended particles. Dispersants have the added benefit of improving a variety of other properties like consistency, opacity and processability.
