Paint Analysis 2nd revised edition

Books

Paint Analysis

The market demands modern, high-performance, flawless paints that possess specified properties. Where deviations from set points occur, the cause must be investigated and the error must be remedied. What "standard methods" don't disclose is why a particular coating either meets or fails to meet a requirement. Thus the author presents modern analytical techniques and their applications in the coatings industry that answer further complex questions. The information in this book can be used for performing failure analysis, production control and quality control, and also meet the requirements of modern high-level quality management. An excellent combination of theory and practice for formulators, paint engineers and applied technologists seeking a sound basic introduction to instrumental paint analysis and concrete answers to everyday problems.
