Coatings FormulationThe 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 formulation guidelines are analysed. Throughout, the focus is on coatings formulation and how to arrive at the final recipe. A special feature of the book is its detailed index, which allows the reader to conduct targeted searches for specific aspects of coatings formulation.
All calculations based on recipes and formulations are worked through step by step and should therefore be intelligible to beginners, as well. Coatings Formulation familiarises laboratory assistants, engineers and chemists with the practice of formulation paints, presupposing a basic knowledge of chemistry, binders, pigments and additives. It also serves as an important reference work for all readers interested in paints and coatings.
