Book Description

Serving as an all-in-one guide to the entire field of coatings technology, this encyclopedic reference covers a diverse range of topics-including basic concepts, coating types, materials, processes, testing and applications—summarizing both the latest developments and standard coatings methods. Take advantage of the insights and experience of over 100 recognized experts in over 100 chapters to select and apply the best coatings for your own product needs.

Emphasizing an interdisciplinary exchange of ideas and approaches, the Coatings Technology Handbook, Second Edition review the most recent testing methods, including infrared spectroscopy, thermal analysis, weathering, and cure monitoring…extensively details a variety of contemporary processes such as flexography, electroless plating, flame surface treatment, embossing, and calendaring …analyses current materials and surface coatings from resins and thermoplastic elastomers to peelable medical, radiation-cured, leather, and metal coatings…and much more.
