Pigment dispersion properties you should you look for when assessing quality

To achieve good quality inks and paints, pigments (and quality pigments at that) are what really make the difference.

When looking at pigment dispersions for your ink and paint products, you need to consider:

A company who can provide you with customisation and bespoke services, like those at Centre Colours. Manufacturing specific pigment dispersions customised and specifically formulated to suit your particular requirements.

Your end product. All pigments are reasonably stable; however, pigment selection will depend on end-use. For example, car pigments require excellent lightfastness, whereas those on a cereal box, for example, don’t.

The fineness of the grind. This is a key factor in pigmentation, and different industries and different products will all have different requirements all dictated by the end-use.

Quality pigment dispersions that avoid toxic ingredients wherever possible.

At Centre Colours, we can offer and provide advice and support on all of the above and more!

We’re experts when it comes to finding the right pigment dispersions for our customers.

Services that outperform 

We provide a wide variety of specialised services and bespoke solutions when it comes to dispersion and concentrates, ranging from ready-made solutions to custom made formulations based on your requirements. 

We’re aware that working in the ink, paint and coatings industry, many businesses will already have their own proven, tried and tested formulas, and solely wish to make the most of our first-class manufacturing services. 

Others in the sector need our help and input with the creation of entirely new innovative products or indeed improvements and tweaks to existing ones. 

Whatever the need for our services, we’re happy to help with it all. 

When it comes to finding the raw materials for the manufacturing of these products, this might be something your team does internally, and once sourced, these can then be sent to us for toll manufacture, or you may prefer us to source and purchase these materials on your behalf, carrying out the entire process within our factory. 

We also carry a stock of standard products; however, don’t let the word standard fool you, we can also customise and tailor to specific requirements as necessary.

Pigment powder and liquid paint

What we do

Our customers are primarily in the inks, paints and other coatings sectors. Most already have a clear idea of the kinds of product needed for the markets that they serve and often have their own proven formulations. Often this results in the customers supplying the raw materials to us for toll manufacture. Alternatively we can provide a full service which includes sourcing materials ourselves if this is more convenient for you.

A bespoke service

The applications for inks and paints are many and varied. This is why we provide a bespoke service to individual customers rather than attempt to provide “off the shelf” solutions for all eventualities. We do however have products that we have developed in our laboratories as standard ranges that are potentially of interest to several companies. For example, lithographic ink companies may be interested in our pigmented concentrates for use in conventional sheetfed, heatset and radiation-cured inks.
