Transmission electron microscopy and image analysis were used to quantify the distribution of pore volume through the thickness of coating films. Clay coatings applied to non-porous media dried at high rates were found to have 2% greater pore volume than those dried at a significantly lower rate. Coatings dried at higher rates were found to be denser near the surface and bulkier through the center.
