Application Note: Determination of Volatile Content of Coatings by Rapid Loss-On-Drying Instrumentation
4 December 2013

Paint is a three component material made of a pigment, a vehicle, and carrier. To ensure that they have the right blend of components a manufacturer will run loss on drying assays, which examines the amount of material that will volatilize once it is heated. This white paper compares two methods for testing paints and coatings and found rapid loss-on-drying methods prove to be more desirable than traditional testing methods.
