Coatings R&D Notebook
The solutions to various paint industry problems suggested by Dr. Harvest L. Collier, University of Missouri-Rolla, are presented. He suggests that skinning has long been observed as a potential problem for certain coating systems that contain unsaturated resin systems. For coating applications, nanomaterials have been shown to provide beneficial properties for optical coating properties, wear- and scratch-resistant coatings, thermal spray coatings and conductive coatings. He advises that associative thickeners are an important group of rheological additives used in various coatings formulations.
