ABSTRACT
Sets out procedures for wetting a powder into a liquid, deagglomerating the wetted clumps, determining if solution composition can be adjusted to prevent reagglomeration, selecting dispersing agents to prevent reagglomeration and evaluating the stability of the dispersion against reagglomeration. This Standard is applicable to particles ranging in size from approximately 0.05 to 100 µm. This Standard is identical with and has been reproduced from ISO 14887:2000.
