Abstract

Abstract Organic coatings in which air bubbles (of micron size) are introduced for producing opacity due to light scattering are called microvoid coatings. A historical account of the development of this type of coatings, various formulation techniques and their assessment, properties of microvoid coatings and their uses are reviewed. Some of the properties which have advantages over the conventional organic coatings, such as hiding power, open and closed cellular void structure and density of microvoid coatings are highlighted and the uses of microvoid coatings in fields other than surface coatings are also described.
