Significance and Use
5.1 Many architectural paints, particularly white and light tints, change significantly in film opacity as they dry. An increase in hiding is sometimes associated with porosity and poor film integrity with conventionally formulated coatings. A decrease can result in a disappointing paint job. The wet-to-dry hiding change is therefore a property of great practical importance.
