PVC

abbreviation for
(Elements & Compounds) polyvinyl chloride; a synthetic thermoplastic material made by polymerizing vinyl chloride. The properties depend on the added plasticizer. The flexible forms are used in hosepipes, insulation, shoes, garments, etc. Rigid PVC is used for moulded articles

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.
3) show that at least below the critical pigment volume concentration (CPVC) and in the absence of trapped microvoids into the film, the variation of the wavelength independent scattering efficiency is a monotonically increasing function of the PVC.
The foundation underpinning more recent investigations dealing with coating adhesive demand dates back to Asbeck and Van Loo'[s.sup.1] proposal of the "critical pigment volume concentration" (CPVC) of paint formulations in 1949.
Finally, at the critical pigment volume concentration (CPVC) there is an abrupt discontinuity in the curve due to the formation of air pores (voids) in the film.
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.sub.2], clays, calcium carbonates, or other extenders.
The pigment volume concentration (PVC) was set to 90% with 8% of carboxylated latexes.
Surfynol DF-220 is a mineral oil-based defoamer that was engineered to provide exceptional defoaming in architectural and high PVC (Pigment Volume Concentration) paints and coatings.
High-PVC (pigment volume concentration) formulations and high-viscosity formulations need strong defoamer's, like mineral oils, such as Surfynol [R] DF75 defoamer.In high-gloss systems, mineral oils can cause haze, so in these systems silicone defoamers, such as Surfynol DF58 defoamer or Surfynol DF62 defoamer, can give effective foam control without haze.
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.
Because of the chemical reactions in the silicates the cohesion is also acceptable despite the extremely high pigment volume concentration (PVC).
Crosslinking reduces permeability as does increasing the pigment volume concentration (PVC).
