Products

Gemini Dispersions is a leading producer of high quality pigment dispersions. As a mid-sized industry supplier, we bridge the gap between the vertically integrated giants of the pigment sector and the small local colour houses. Large enough to cope yet small enough to care, Gemini is able to offer a unique service based on an exceptional range of products and a customer-focussed attitude. 

We’re able to offer a vast selection of aqueous pigment dispersions, solvent based pigment dispersions, plasticisers and polyols in various raw materials – including certain organic pigments. The majority of Gemini products - sold under the brand name GemSperse - incorporate a unique blend of surfactants and resin systems, offering the perfect combination of multi-compatibility, quality and value for money. These come as result of our complete independence as colour specialists and our application expertise built on years of industry experience.
 
As well as a comprehensive range of GemSperse dispersions, Gemini also provides a number of tailor-made products and toll manufacturing services specifically for pigment manufacturers and large colour users.
 
To discover the range, please head over to our website. If you require any help or assistance in finding the right product for your application, please do not hesitate to call. Our specialist sales representatives can be reached on 01706 214 751.

Formulation

When formulating aqueous pigment dispersions, we consider all environmental and multicompatibility issues. Our formula consists of the pigment, generally at the highest possible loading; a surfactant, based on nonyl phenol ethoylates; a humectant, made with propylene glycol; biocide and water. We also occasionally include other products such as thickeners and anti-foam agents.

Gemsperse - AD Pigment Dispersions

Based on a broadly compatible acrylic resin, the GemSperse AD range of products are designed mainly for use in water-based inks and latex systems and are specially suited to systems with a high pH.  Our AD range boasts a number of benefits, being surfactant free and a high degree of compatibility.  With GemSperse you can be sure of achieving a strong, glossy finish that is resistant to rubbing.  Visit our website to learn more about the range.

Gemsperse - AX Pigment Dispersions

Based on an acrylic resin system, the GemSperse AX Pigment Dispersion range is ideal for use in water-based flexographic inks, latex systems and water-based paints.  We took the GemSperse AD range even further with the AX range, which is extremely compatible, with excellent rheology, as well as enhanced gloss and transparency.  Additionally, GemSperse AX products offer an increased tolerance to alcohol.  Visit our website for more details.
