Paint and Coatings

The purpose of paints and coating is primarily to prevent corrosion and wear. The aesthetic aspect is usually of secondary importance. The nature of the protective coating is usually determined by the surface and the duration of the desired protection. Needless to say, the cost of the coating is another factor which can vary considerably from place to place, as well as with time. The concern for the environment is another factor which must be taken into consideration since the drying process may involve the release of volatile organic compounds (VOC), which can contribute to smog or other undesirable atmospheric conditions.
