Solsperse™ AC5180 is a fully neutralized 50% solids active, low molecular weight sodium salt of polyacrylic acid dispersant in water which offers significant technical advantages in a range of ceramic processing methods, including slip casting, gel casting, spray drying, isostatic pressing, and uniaxial pressing. Solsperse™ AC5180 is used in typical ceramic slurries, where superior dispersion of particles in water is required. Solsperse™ AC5180 shows an excellent calcium ion tolerance. Solsperse™ AC5180 should be dissolved in the water and binder mixture before the addition of ceramic solids. Addition levels should be based on the surface area of the ceramic / filler. The dosage level is typically 2mg active dispersant per square meter of ceramic filler surface area. This is simply the surface area divided by 5. Small particle size / higher surface area may result in a higher dispersant demand.
