A Scanning Electron Microscope Study of the Surface Structure of Mineral Pigments, Latices and Thickeners used for Paper Coating on Non-absorbent Substrates
We investigate the structure of coating layers prepared on non-absorbent substrates using a bench coater, composed of mineral pigments, latex binders and polymeric thickeners and dispersants, using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) that are typical of those used in paper coatings. The main aim of the study is to identify how systematic variations in the composition of the coating, including pigment type (calcium carbonate, clay), the glass transition temperature of the binder, and type (CMC,...[Show more]
