A new approach to the determination of the minimum film formation temperature (MFFT) of latex dispersions is reported here. The procedure is based on the measurement of the change in electrical conductivity with temperature when a bulk sample of a latex dispersion is partially dried, under an applied osmotic stress, to the stage where the latex particles are in close proximity. The variation in conductivity with temperature, under these conditions, was found to have a marked change or...[Show more]
