The mission of the pigment chemical engineering research group is the design of pigments through physical and chemical methods in order to develop new products with improved properties and new functionalities. The group researches all aspects of wet and dry pigment engineering, covering the vast area of existing and new additives from dispersants and dry grinding agents to chemical stabilisers and surface treatments.
The available equipment allows us to study all aspects of wet and dry grinding, classification and surface treatment and functionalisation. A synthesis lab also allows us to prepare specific molecules and polymers for research and pilot trials. The design of sustainable process chemicals based on renewable raw materials is a key guiding principle in all development work.
