Coatings and Films Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

The Chemistry and Physics of Coatings
Second edition
by A. R. Marrion

The Chemistry and Physics of Coatings provides an introduction to the science underpinning the paint (organic coatings) industry to chemists who may have no previous knowledge of polymer-based technologies.

The Chemistry and Physics of Coatings 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 gives 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.
