Examples are Colloïds, a substance microscopically dispersed evenly throughout another substance, Emulsions, a mixture of two or more immiscible (un-blendable) liquids and Suspensions, a heterogeneous fluid containing solid particles that are sufficiently large for sedimentation. The making of a dispersion is called dispersing.
In paint technology a dispersion is a mixture of binding materials with a solid or liquid in an other liquid. This fluid is mostly water, while the dispersed substance is divided into very small balls, but not resolved. Dispersion by light scattering is usually milky in color. The dispersions are often used in latex wall paints, which can thus be diluted with water.
Dispersions are often used in latex wall paints, which can thus be diluted with water. The homogeneity of a dispersion depends on size and weight of particles. To determine the size of particles the use of a Fineness of Grind gauge or grindometer is needed. For proper mixing and / or stirring a variety of laboratory and industrial tools are available depending on volume or capacity.
