Axalta and MIT analyse waterborne paint spraya

16 December 2014

Eric Houze, Research Fellow at Axalta Coating Systems and Bavand Keshavarz, a PhD candidate from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), presented the results of a joint research programme on new rheological measurement technologies that can be applied to sprayable paints.

The new technology analyses and quantifies the behaviour of complex fluids during spray applications. During the paint spray application process, droplet particle sizes and distributions can be determining factors for the quality and appearance of the final paint. The new technology, designed to help improve paint sprayability, should result in an improvement in the surface quality and visual appeal.
