is important as this will allow coating manufacturers to produce dispersions which
can be used with many different types of resin products.
Hyperdispersants will permit higher pigment loadings in the dispersion; not
only increasing productivity, but also reducing the amount of potentially incompatible
medium which is carried through from the millbase to the final coating formulation.
Hyperdispersants therefore have wider "acceptance" in a range of base finishes,
especially if a "wide compatibility resin" is used, which is important in production
of tinters for mixing schemes. Compatibility is therefore crucial in
general industrial solvent-based paints where hyperdispersants can easily
find their use.
