Solid Pigment Dispersions – “Chips”

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.

Available for water, solvent and 100% solids formulations.

Features and Benefits:

  • Wide range of inorganic and organic pigments
  • Wide choice of resin chemistries (Epoxy, CAB, Polyester, Acrylic, Vinyl)
  • High pigment concentration
  • Maximum color utilization – full development of hue and tone
  • Superior color transparency
  • Ease of use, liquid dispersion on demand
  • No milling necessary
  • Dissolve time is usually 1-3 hours depending on the solvent system and mixing conditions
  • Storage stable for 3+ years (indefinite shelf life)
  • Eliminate storing liquids – solvents
  • Custom colors/resin systems upon request
  • Technical support
