The current method of developing new paints is highly practical in nature, built on the knowledge of experienced formulators and a general understanding of interactions within the paint system. Instead of testing and revising samples until the target needs are met, computational tools and methods could help by significantly reducing the time and resources necessary. The aim of this project is to develop a knowledge base and group contribution based property estimation methods for pigments as a step in creating a computer-aided product design system for coatings. In addition to reducing development costs, a model for chemical substitution to less harmful alternatives could also reduce the environmental impact of paints.
