Your final paper for my section of this course must be 10-12 pages typed with a minimum of 2000 words including references, captions etc. You must present at least two points of view on your topic and cite at least two peer-reviewed scientific articles per point of view. National Geographic, Scientific American and Internet journals are not peer-reviewed; the Journal of the American Chemical Society, Nature and Science are peer-reviewed. Consult a reference librarian if you are unsure. Reference all materials used and note the date any web materials were accessed.
It's a chemistry class so and I am a painting contractor so I chose the chemistry of paint. Might be a tricky and boring one, and idk how much you know about chemistry so lmk if you're up for it. If not I can find someone else to do it, but I like your writing style so I'd rather use you. Lmk though
The paper should discuss the bonds that make up paint,
It should discuss. 1. The chemical components of paint. 2. Molecular composition. 3. What makes some paint better than others.
Chemistry of paints outline
A. Introduction: Paint
i. The meaning of paint
ii. The common types of paint
B. What are the chemical components of paint?
i. Pigment(s) - prime pigments to impart color and opacity
extender pigments - They are those large particles of pigment that are added to save binder strengthen the film and enhance adhesion
ii. Binder – it is a polymer that forms a matrix that holds pigments in place.
iii. Vehicle- referred to as water/resin to regulate viscosity
iv. Solvent/thinner – they are either water or an organic solvent for reducing viscosity.
v. Additives – chemical components for modifying the liquid paint properties or the dry film
C. The formulation and making of paints
i. The preparation equipment for paint
D. What makes some paints better than other?
i. High quality and standard quality paints
ii. How to choose the right paint
