Also known as a plasticizer, Dispersing Agent is required to prevent settling or clumping of the solution. It can be added as a surface active polymer to a colloidal solution for improving its particle separation efficiency giving a homogenous mixture. This agent de-flocculates the solid particles, thus reducing the viscosity of the suspension. Dispersing Agent works on the principle of adsorption mechanism which imparts a negative charge on the particle surface. This anion then repels positively charged particle developed when came in contact with the water.
