Pigment Dispersions

Quaker Color specializes in the manufacture of solid pigment dispersions (SPDs), also known as “Chips.” Our solid pigment dispersions are produced in a 2-roll mill process and provide outstanding color performance. The SPDs come in multiple resin systems, including Epoxy (3 Series) and CAB (6 Series). They are formulated to be made soluble or “cut” into the solvent/resin system of choice to produce a fully functional liquid pigment dispersion on demand. SPD’s or “Chips” offer superior optical color transparency as compared to typical liquid milled pigment dispersions.
