Rheology of Paints and Coatings


Paints and coatings are used for a variety of purposes. Besides protecting surfaces against various environmental influences, they are used to decorate both interiors and exteriors, or for enhancing functions. From production to end use application, raw materials such as binders, solvents, pigments, fillers, and additives should remain uniformly mixed. In addition, they need to remain stable during pumping processes and storage, as well as after application with brushes, rollers, spray guns, etc. This webinar aims to introduction to rheological measurements of paints and coatings that are crucial for evaluating their quality.

We will cover the following topics:

- Simple test methods and Rheometry
- Flow behavior during the application
- Behavior after the application
- Long-term storage stability
- Curing of powder coatings and UV coatings
