REFRACTIVE INDEX COMPARISON CHART

For The Paint Chemist

In order for a coating to be opaque and look white, it needs to be able to bend and scatter light before the light reaches the substrate.   The bending of light is governed by the Refractive Index of the various materials in the coating and the differences between them.

This chart is a useful comparison of the Refractive Index of various components of a typical paint formulation.
