1 CHEM/FRNSC 427 Paint Chemistry Spring 2008 Format. The paint chemistry module will cover the material below: 1. Paint, coatings and polymer terminology. 2. Chemical formulations and compositions of various paints, coatings and polymers. 3. The physical properties of paints and/or polymers to include: color, texture, thickness, layer. 4. Sequence, metallic/nonmetallic/pearlescent, other surface characteristics. 5. Chemical and instrumental methods of analysis of paints. Objectives. After completing this module, you should be able to: 1. Define the following terms and concepts Briefly describe the differences among the following types of paint: Automotive Paint, Structural (architectural) Paint, Bicycle Paint, Maintenance Paint, Marine Paint, Aircraft Paint What is a polymer? What is a paint? What is the difference between a paint and a coating? What are the two primary purposes of paint? What makes a paint unique? What is a paint vehicle? What is a paint binder? What is a pigment? What is an extender pigment? List 5 of the more common extenders. What is the major resin used in a paint formulation? What is a paint additive? List at least 3. What is a paint drier? List at least 5. What is the difference between a thermosetting resin and a thermoplastic resin? What is the most widely used white paint pigment? Name the two forms of this white pigment. How can these two forms of white paint pigment be distinguished from each other? What metal pigment is used in metallic motor vehicle paint?
