Coatings R&D Notebook
The views of Dr. Harvest L. Collier, University of Missouri-Rolla, on nonmetallic additives for protective coatings, intercoat adhesion promoters and differences between dispersing additive and grinding resin are discussed. The nonmetallic additives are used in reducing the application of hazardous materials as coating additives, applied in waterborne coatings and also applied in standard coating manufacturing techniques. The repulsive forces are characteristically electrostatic and may be steric in nature in dispersing additives, while grinding resins rely primarily on steric forces to separate the particles. The application of the typical adhesion promoter additives can help in formulating effective ways to improve film intercoat adhesion.
