Coating pigments – general Functions of pigment in the coating layer Pigment is the most abundant component in the coating, so it is naturally the most important factor affecting the properties of the coating. Pigment, in fact, accounts for 80 – 95 % of the coating by weight. The volume fraction, however, is more important
