Third Edition brings acclaimed textthoroughly up to date with the latestorganic coatings technology

"Organic Coatings, Third Edition" is an unparalleled reference and text for organic coatings technology and its myriad applications. It begins with discussions of key principles of coatings, then thoroughly explores raw materials, physical concepts, formulations, and applications. Scientists, engineers, and paint formulators all gain a deeper understanding of the principles underlying the technology and learn how to use these principles in the development, production, and application of organic coatings. The four authors, all leading industry experts, offer a unique approach to the topic that correlates the empirical technology of coatings with the underlying science.

This "Third Edition" has been completely revised and updated to reflect numerous changes in the field, including changes driven by increasing pressure to lower VOC emissions, reduce energy requirements, and eliminate potential health hazards from organic coatings components. In addition, the authors have developed new material to make the text more accessible for scientists and engineers first entering the field, as well as for students taking coatings courses. At the same time, the hallmarks that distinguished the two previous editions have been retained, including: Troubleshooting guidance for coatings scientists and technologistsClear differentiation between established principles and hypotheses requiring further researchPrecise definitions of coatings industry terminologyExtensive references to the current literatureHundreds of figures that help readers visualize key concepts and techniques

Whether you are just entering the field of organic coatings and need a broad overview or you are an experienced professional who needs a sophisticated reference, you can depend on "Organic Coatings" to give you the information and answers you need.
