Though satisfactory results may be careful addition of the product to the liquid vehicle, the recommended method of incorporation is to briefly soak the product in 1-2 times its own weight of water or co-solvent. Dispersion is achieved by low energy stirring, using a slow speed blade capable of moving the whole mass. The pre-mix is then slowly added to the binder, this should be down before introducing the pre-mix. High shear should be avoided, as it bends and breaks the flakes, reducing both brightness and gassing resistance. As the water stability of this grade may be system dependent, trials are recommended to verify the required level of performance.
