Dispersing agents stabilize deflocculated pigment particles.
Microfossils: For chironomid analysis, a measured amount of freeze-dried sediment was rehydrated and deflocculated in a warm 5% KOH solution for approximately 20 min, then rinsed through a 74 [micro]m mesh sieve.
Watch the flocculation or deflocculation of your glaze, because if it is deflocculated, it may dry too fast before you have a chance to impress the leaf.
Bioindicator analysis: Surface sediments (~3g wet sediment) for chironomid analysis were (1) deflocculated in 10% KOH, (2) heated to 70[degrees]C for 10 minutes, (3) heated in water to 90[degrees]C for 20 minutes, and (4) sieved using 212Lim and 95Lim-mesh sieves.
I also have seen cases where the shearing stress of application (spray or brush) has deflocculated paint and changed the color, including one in which paint brushed (high shear stress) in corners was significantly different from the paint applied by roller (low shear stress) on the other surfaces.
It is evident that kaolin suspensions without deflocculant typically exhibit shear-thinning behavior whereas well deflocculated systems show a rheological behavior close to Newtonian.
As the shear rate is increased, a shear-thinning behavior is observed as the aggregates are deflocculated and the chain entanglements among the HEC thickener are disrupted.
Ashoke SenGupta of Amcol Health & Beauty Solutions said using Magnasperse gel in the oil phase of a cosmetic formulation caused deflocculated suspended pigments, a thickened oil phase, a more stable emulsion, excellent spreading and a longer shelf life.
