Fourteen papers cover three areas of film formation: Aspects of film formation mechanism, film property development in thermoplastic and crosslinkable systems, and the morphology and film structure of the resulting films. Advanced instrumental measurements are used to define morphology and determine unique film structures as well as to provide input into models of the film formation process.

This book focuses on characterization of organic coatings by different testing methods and understanding of structure formation and materials properties. The knowledge of protective organic coatings and current test methods is based largely on empirical experience. This book aims at explaining the coating property changes during film drying and curing in terms of chemical and physical transformations. Current test methods are reviewed with emphasis on understanding their physical basis and expressing the test results in terms of comparable physical quantities. In general, this book provides readers a deeper understanding of the binder design, coating film formation process, properties build-up, appearance and defect formation, and automotive paint application. It also suggests manifold ways to improving the coatings performance. This book is designed for coating professionals to gain deeper understanding of characterization techniques and to select the right ones to solve their coating problems. It is ideal for both experienced and early career scientists and engineers. Also, it is useful for graduate students in the general area of protective coatings.

A properly formed film plays a vital role in the quality of coatings. The book provides a holistic overview on all aspects of film formation from application to coatings technology, including physical and chemical basics. The Mission: An understanding of film formation in its entirety - from basic coating concepts to the physico-chemical aspects of how films are formed through to application of the ready-to-use coating. This approach obviates the need for prior academic training to fully understand the principles and relationships that underlie film formation. It also constitutes an important step towards the formulation of perfect coatings that perform brilliantly. The Audience: Not only newcomers, career-changers, students and professionals wanting to deepen their theoretical knowledge of technique on one hand and coatings chemistry on the other, but also experts seeking to tackle specific problems that extend beyond their daily practice. This book is suited for everyone aspiring to a deeper understanding of the mechanisms of film formation. The Value: This book, with a well-balanced range of topics, provides a comprehensive description of the basic principles of film formation. Its middle section covers fundamental polymer and physico-chemical aspects in great detail. This layout enables readers who lack an academic background in chemistry to understand the more specific content of the later chapters, without first having to study a comprehensive textbook on the subject. Holistic overview on film formation covering all aspects from theoretical background to application. Extremely efficient access to the process of film formation. Institutional Credibility: Author is one of Europe`s most active coatings educators

Film formation processes determine the final end use properties and morphologies of coating and thin films. Understanding these processes allows the tailor-making of coatings and films with unique morphologies and properties. This symposium series book describes recent research into the kinetics, mechanism, and rate processes in film formation as well as resulting unique morphologies. Several unique characterization methods are applied to study film formation kinetics, morphology, film structure, and properties.

The Chemistry and Physics of Coatings provides an introduction to the science underpinning the paint (organic coatings) industry to graduate level chemists who may have no previous knowledge of polymer-based technologies. This book 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 aims to give 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 has been expanded to include 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. The Chemistry and Physics of Coatings will be of particular interest to graduates of materials and polymer sciences and related areas. It will also appeal to undergraduates, lecturers and those in the paint industry. Extracts from reviews of 1st Edition "... readable and surprisingly comprehensive ... In short this is an excellent book, which I recommend without hesitation." Journal of Materials Chemistry "..an informative and thoroughly recommended volume." Polymer International

Wood Coatings addresses the factors responsible for the performance of wood coatings in both domestic and industrial situations. The term 'wood coatings' covers a broad range of products including stains, varnishes, paints and supporting ancillary products that may be used indoors or outdoors. Techniques for coating wood go back many centuries but in recent decades there has been a move towards more environmentally-friendly materials, for example, the use of water-borne rather than solvent-borne chemicals. A major objective of Wood Coatings is to explain the underlying factors that influence selection, application and general operational issues. Basic information on the chemistry and technology of coatings is included for the benefit of students and laboratory technicians. Additionally, the book includes individual chapters of interest to architects, specifiers, and industrial users. * Offers up-to-date guidance on current availability and usage of wood coatings * Provides the reader with a basic understanding of both coating and substrate interactions * Covers both architectural (trade and DIY) and industrial sectors

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 technologists Clear differentiation between established principles and hypotheses requiring further research Precise definitions of coatings industry terminology Extensive references to the current literature Hundreds 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.
