While temperature and velocity play important roles in solution stability, electrokinetic force is the biggest contributor. Most solids suspended in water possess negative charge. Because particles with similar charges repel each other, those particles with like charges choose to remain in suspension rather than clump together and settle out of suspension. Similarly, any circumstance that would result in reduced charges on the particles would allow them to gather into larger particles and eventually “floc”.
