Pycnometers are used to establish the density of coating materials, other fluids and paste products.  


The density (r) of a substance is the ratio of its mass (M) to its volume (v).  

Unless specified otherwise, the density of the coating material is given at 20°C.  

The density is given by measuring the weight of a full pycnometer and deducting the weight of the empty one.  

The weight difference and volume are used to calculate the density.
