Particle size analysis is a crucial stage in the manufacture of ceramics. The size and distribution of the powders used in the manufacturing process directly relate to the physical and mechanical properties of the finished ceramic product. Various techniques, such as laser diffraction and acoustic spectroscopy, can be used to analyse and control particle size and distribution to ensure a reliable supply of standardised products that meet the strength and durability requirements of the end user.
Paint and coating manufacture
The physical properties of paints and coatings are heavily impacted by particle size within bulk ingredients. Optical properties, including opacity, undertone, gloss or film, weather resistance and tinting strength are also influenced by particle size, as well as pigment dispersion. This means that particle sizing, counting and distribution analysis is vital to creating a product whose properties and finish are of the quality expected by customers.
