ICL phosphates, like tetrasodium pyrophosphate (TSPP) and tetrapotassium pyrophosphate (TKPP), aid in the wetting and even dispersion of pigments in formulating the final product. In latex paints, TKPP and potassium tripolyphosphate (KTPP) are the preferred dispersing agents, yielding systems of low and stable viscosities, but also acting as sequestrants.
