In a seminal paper, Asbeck and Van Loo (1) described the importance of pigment volume concentration
(PVC) on many of the performance aspects of coatings.
Keywords Paper coatings, Critical pigment volume concentration
(CPVC), Binder demand, Calcium carbonate, Kaolin clay
Increasing the pigment volume concentration
(PVC) thus augments overlap, resulting in losses in scattering efficiency.

The critical pigment volume concentration
(CPVC) is the formulation point at which there is just enough resin available to fill in the spaces between pigment particles, whether the pigment particles are [TiO.

The CY-W coating also shows a considerable number of smaller particles, as it has the highest pigment volume concentration
of the three coatings investigated.
Pigment volume concentration
(PVC) has significant effects on the properties of coatings, (3) including a great effect on the transport of corrosive species of electrolytes through them.
Rohm and Haas Company has been granted a patent for a fluid extender pigment mixture, comprising at least one extender pigment; at least one thickener; and optionally at least one binder wherein the extender pigment has an average particle size of less than three [micro]m and an average oil adsorption value as measured by ASTM D281-31 of less than 30; wherein the mixture has a pigment volume concentration
of at least 80, a volume solids of no greater than 50, a specific gravity of less than 3 g/cc and a viscosity at a frequency of 1.
