A new, very fast, and simple method is described to measure the Critical Pigment Volume Concentration on a PVC ladder of the coating applied to a conductive substrate.
(3) The pigment volume concentration (PVC) of the Zn pigment in the coating should equal or exceed the CPVC in order for the coating to properly provide sacrificial/cathodic protection to the underlying steel substrate.
Thus, it is surmised that the 46% PVC primer corresponds to the critical pigment volume concentration (CPVC) for the primer, suggesting that cathodic protection of the Al alloy due to Mg metal occurs most effectively at or near CPVC.
Focusing on the topic of Critical Pigment Volume Concentration (CPVC) in Coatings, the FSCT has announced the latest offerings in its series of Virtual Learning Conferences.
This first session introduces the concepts of Pigment Volume Concentration (PVC) and Critical Pigment Volume Concentration (CPVC) in coatings.
The dispersions marketed under the brand name Vinnapas can be formulated over a broad range of pigment volume concentrations. Specific Vinnapas dispersions are manufactured without the use of alkylphenoi ethoxylates (APED) or formaldehyde donors.
