Dispersants like LOMAR® and DILOFLO® function through adsorption of their hydrophobic polymer backbone onto the surface of a suspended particle. The anionic sulfonate group is oriented away from the particle and imparts a negative charge causing them to repel each other. This effect prevents agglomeration and floc formation.
The Specialty and Construction Division manufactures the widest variety of products for numerous specific applications. Click the link to the left to view a representative sample of this product family. Many more products are available or being developed.
We can customize liquid or powder products according to your specific needs by altering degree of sulfonation, molecular weight, solids content, salt type, salt level and several other parameters. Let us tailor a dispersant for your application.
LOMAR® and DILOFLO® Dispersants are effective because they:
- Decrease slurry viscosity
- Increase slurry concentration
- Perform in a wide pH range
- Do not affect surface tension
- Do not contribute to foaming
- Aid in forming stable emulsions
- Reduce surface energy
- Produce faster grinding times
