This volume compiles a wealth of information on the composition, properties, utilization, and performance of major classes of additives while alerting formulators to potentially damaging interactions and challenges in the selection and testing of these materials. Completely revised and updated, the Handbook of Coatings Additives, Second Edition offers practical knowledge on the industry's most widely used compounds to accelerate and refine laboratory procedures, meet regulatory standards, and avoid hazards in the formulation of coatings additives. It is an ideal guide to making informed decisions in the development and design of effective coatings systems.
"…The extensive knowledge in this book will help the formulator avoid repetitive trial-and-error experiments….recommended as a valuable source of information not readily accessible in other reference books or manufacturers' literature, and should be available to every formulator."
