Book Description

Modern paints and coatings offer an astounding variety of formulations that are used to improve the durability, appearance, and lifespan of countless products. From cars to furniture, computers, and mechanical components, paints and coatings play a vital role in nearly every manufactured product available. 

Straightforward Guidance for Developing and Fulfilling Product-Specific Criteria

Written by an industry insider with more than 30 years of experience, the Paint Technology Handbook provides a practical and straightforward guide for the design of coatings systems. The text highlights the most practical analytical methods and their applications for material selection as well as manufacturing processes.

Key Topics:

·         The components and properties of paints, including resins, pigments, extenders, solvents, and additives

·         The chemical composition, physical properties, function, wear characteristics, and other properties used for material selection

·         Color standards, metamerism, and color matching

Processes and Techniques for Operating Optimal, Cost-Efficient Paint and Surface Finishing Systems

Encompassing processes and equipment used for manufacturing the paints themselves as well as application systems, this book reviews the essential techniques and equipment for deposition and finishing systems.

Highlights Include:

·         A survey of liquid paint application technologies, including spray and electrodeposition techniques

·         Transfer efficiency, automated control, and maintenance for all application techniques

·         Curing, testing methods for finished materials, and quality control techniques

The Paint Technology Handbook emphasizes the importance of understanding paint materials, manufacturing techniques, testing, deposition techniques, and equipment in order to meet product-specific needs.
