Industrial Color Science Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Industrial Color Testing
Fundamentals and Techniques
Completely Revised
Second Edition
by Hans G. Volz

This book is a complete treatment focusing on theoretical and practical aspects of testing pigments, dyes, and pigmented and dyed coatings. It provides basic knowledge for newcomers in the field and serves as a reference work for experts, answering questions arising in the production, processing and application of coloring materials in binders.

All color phenomena that we can observe in coatings have their origin in the interaction between the coating material and visible light. This interaction produces absorption and scattering, which in practice determine the optical behavior of materials. Industrial Color Testing is the best advanced book available on color science as it applies to coatings.

This book is a great reference guide to all technical professionals who are dealing with pigments and dyes, whether as manufacturers, formulators or consumers. It can also be a good reference material for scientists engaged in the research and development work on pigments and dyes.
