A novel micromech. model is proposed to predict mech. and viscoelastic properties of pigmented coating layers. The model describes the macroscopic response of a coating by calcg. microscopic interactions between pigment particles that are connected with latex bridges.The model is applied to a sinusoidal deformation and compared with exptl. data. Results explain changes in mech. properties of coatings at different pigment vol. concns.
