    Abstract: In the quest to develop sustainable materials for the coating industries, the surface coating potentials of two Nigerian local clays were evaluated in alkyd paints. The highly import-dependent coating industry in Nigeria gulps over N10b annually on materials that can be sourced locally, therefore, developing technically, and economically viable ext... Show More
