The nonvolatile or solid components of a coating, expressed as percent by volume. This number can be used to calculate the amount of wet film thickness that needs to be applied to produce the desired dry film thickness of a coating. For instance, a coating with 50 percent volume solids will require twice as much wet film thickness as is desired in the dry film thickness, because half the volume of the material will volatilize.
