A dispersing agent, or dispersant, is a surface active polymer that is added to the bath. In the denim garment industry, the dispersing agents are typically used to maintain the dispersion of indigo or dye molecules in the bath, preventing their deposit on the garment. For this reason the dispersing agents are also called anti back staining agents.
Wetting agents make solid materials more susceptible to water immersion by reducing surface tension or interfacial tension, allowing the water to expand on, or penetrate, the surface of solid materials. Wetting agents are used before the application of other chemicals to enhance their performance.
