Thermal Analysis of Paints and Coatings

The role of paints and coatings is to protect surfaces from a range of defects and failures, as well as to enhance appearance. It is therefore important to understand how these materials respond as a function of temperature and time.

Thermal analysis provides valuable information on glass transition, crystallization, melting, evaporation, degradation, stress relaxation, and softening point, and also physical properties such as the elastic and viscous moduli. Understanding these behaviors is important in the development and optimization of a wide range of paints and coatings.

This webinar provides useful information for industries that develop and manufacture coatings, from automotive to construction, and chemical to electronics.
