EC Library European Coatings Handbook


European Coatings Handbook

"Comprehensive", "based on practice" and "up to date" sum up the aims of the European Coatings Handbook compiled by the faculty team at the University of Applied Sciences of Krefeld, one of the leading training establishments for coatings industry in Germany. The second edition of the handbook covers the entire spectrum of coatings formulation in a single volume and acts as a vehicle for acquiring and deepening a sound knowledge of all the important principles of coatings production. The handbook's topicality in all aspects of coatings composition, application methodology, quality assurance, environment and industrial health and safety is highly useful -not only to those in training but also to established professionals who wish to update their knowledge thoroughly.
