The purpose of this study was to note the effect of varying drying temperatures on the gloss of papers coated with three different coating formulations. The three coatings studied contained Polyvinyl Acetate, a combination of styrene butadiene and casein, and a formula using casein and styrene butadiene as binders in conjunction with a fine particle size clay. Coating applications and drying were accomplished with a Keegan Laboratory Coater.
The results indicated that increasing drying temperatures decreased gloss, and that overdrying increased gloss.
