American Coatings Show Best Paper leads off May Issue of Journal of Coatings Technology and Research.
Leading off the issue is the 2012 American Coatings Show award-winning paper. Authored by Antony Van Dyk and Alan Nakatani, of Dow, the article discusses the shear rate-dependent structure of polymer-stabilized titanium dioxide (Ti[0.sub.2]) dispersions. According to the authors, paint properties such as opacity, gloss, stability, and color acceptance depend on the quality of pigment dispersion. For this study, they measured the shear rate-dependent structure of Ti[0.sub.2] dispersions stabilized with commercial polymer dispersants in water. Two different Mw polyacid dispersants and two different Mw acrylate copolymers were used.
The experiments were conducted at the NIST Center for Neutron Research on the perfect crystal diffractometer for ultra-high resolution small-angle neutron scattering (USANS) measurements. The results for Ti[0.sub.2] scattering and rheology showed that shear-induced dissociation occurs for certain dispersants and shear-induced association of Ti[0.sub.2] clusters is observed for other dispersants. These results suggest new ways to consider dispersant selection for paints and the quality of pigment dispersions.
