The Chemistry of Physics and Coatings

The Chemistry and Physics of Coatings provides an introduction to the science underpinning the paint (organic coatings) industry to graduate level chemists who may have no previous knowledge of polymer-based technologies. This book stresses important physical phenomena such as rheology, film formation, and mechanical properties, their exploitation in paint, and the economic and legislative background against which coatings technology is tested. Attention is given to the chemistry of the polymers, pigments, and solvents that compose typical coatings, and the complex 'science and art' of formulating them effectively. The book also aims to give insights into the commercial application of the chemistries described, and includes a glossary of industry and polymer-related terms. Revised and updated, this second edition includes separate chapters on binders for high solids and solvent-free coatings, inorganic and hybrid coatings and coatings formulation. There is also a new section on coatings additives. The Chemistry of Physics and Coatings will be of interest to graduates with no direct involvement in the field, such as chemistry teachers seeking examples of chemical technology. It should also prove useful to undergraduates studying materials and polymer sciences, who may be seeking a career within the paint industry. Finally, it may provide a useful introduction to the subject for new entrants to the industry. Extracts from reviews of 1st Edition "…Conveniently sized, readable, affordably priced and surprisingly comprehensive ... In short this is an excellent book, which I recommend without hesitation." Journal of Materials Chemistry " informative and thoroughly recommended volume." Polymer International
