Author: R. Lambourne, T.A. Strivens
Category: Farben & Beschichtung
Audience: In its review in Polymer News, this book is "...heartily recommended to all technical and scientific workers in the coatings industry worldwide."
6 x 9, Hardcover
Comprehensive and authoritative, this up-to-date exploration of the science and technology of paints and surface coatings covers the theory often missing in other texts and introduces state-of-the-art developments and cutting-edge proposals. Offers an easy-to-read account of the principles involved in the optical properties of paints, covering both the physical and aesthetic aspects of opacity and color, and discussing in detail the physics of paint and the physical chemistry of dispersions. Reviews the polymer chemistry of all common paint binders and the technology of pigment use.
Suggests a totally new approach to building and house paints that looks at the requirements of substrates. Extensive sections on automotive paints and automotive refinish paints address the demands and performance required in these markets. Valuable chapters on the use of computers in the paint industry and health and safety explore their recent influences on coating developments.
This is a completely revised and updated second edition of this very popular book first published in 1987. For all those in the paint industry; paint manufacturers and raw material suppliers; industrial paint users; and students.
"While all the chapters are outstanding in their presentation, I take special note of the chapter on Computers. This is a marvelous exposition of the use of computers, the Internet and the World Wide Web in the formulation and control of coatings design and practice. This book is a very valuable test to those in the coatings industry who wish to explore the various aspects of paint (coatings) technology and its underlying science...It is heartily recommended to all technical and scientific workers in the coatings industry worldwide."
