Accelerated testing serves to determine the coating's ageing behaviour. Thus it has become an indispensable tool of quality assurance for monitoring coating development as well as series production over the last 100 years. This book shows how to identify the weak points of accelerated testing, to av..
The book describes the latest knowledge about acrylic resins in solvent-borne and water-borne systems, and for radiation curing in an understandable and descriptive manner. It discusses the different chemical and physical aspects of the production methods and the related application properties. Furt..
This book offers an overview of the most important aspects and applications of additives for waterborne systems in diverse market segments. Wernfried Heilen helps to understand how additives work and elucidates all kinds of mechanisms in great detail. Furthermore he dispels a lot of myths surroundin..
This book brings together all the disciplines involved in the creation and use of corrosion protection coatings for metals. It presents the latest insights into the quality and chemistry of surfaces, the proper way to prepare them by conversion treatment, the function of resins and anticorrosion pig..
The automobile industry and the varnish manufacturers use a considerable expenditure to produce particularly appealing surfaces. The main focus in the painting industry is on the protection against corrosion, weathering, chemical and mechanical influences as well as obtainment of appealing surfaces...
A summary of detailed information concerning ingredients, formulations, manufacturing, application as well as useful explanations and guidelines coming first handed from the author's experience and expert knowledge. Separated in ten chapters Adrie Winkelaar summarizes the phenomena of paint and coat..
This book presents the technology of coating plastics in a broad and integrated mode, treating both the single influence fields and their connections. One focus is set on the plastic substrate itself. Substrate topics are then connected with coating relevant plastic processing aspects and surface pr..
The new 2nd revised edition of this reference work provides detailed explanations of new recipes and paint formulations in two steps: It opens with a look at the composition of coatings, placing special emphasis on the base binder in each type. Advice on specific formulations is then given before fo..
An alphabetical glossary. This unique compact technical lexicon is an easy to use aid directed to everyone who is in need of single headwords of the coating technology. It neither presupposes special coating knowledge nor fundamental chemistry cognitions. The text deliberately avoids chemical formul..
The Mission of this new book is to know everything about coil coatings and how they can be used successfully. From the basic principle underlying the coil coatings process to substrate preparation, selection of raw materials, coil coatings line equipment, performance testing and research topics thro..
In order to efficiently develop and improve coatings formulations, it is essential to analyse the several factors affecting their properties. For this purpose, Albert Rössler has compiled a comprehensive overview of the statistical approach of design of experiments (DoE), pointing out its effects an..
The dispersion of pigments and fillers is the most important and complex step during paint manufacturing. Wetting, mechanical destruction and stabilization occur simultaneously and each of these steps must be faultless in order to get an optimal dispersion. The book deals with physical and chemical ..
