This volume discusses latices in surface coatings in regards to diverse applications. These water-based latices are playing a far greater role in many applications and match the growing concern over environmental safety. This book is available separately or as part of a 3-volume set and offers an insight into the advances and developments in this field.

  • Covers the principles and practice of the use of latex-based systems in building and construction products, paper coating, textile treatment, polishes and many other specialised applications
As a comprehensive account of the science of polymer latices, these volumes are an invaluable resource for research workers and end-users in academia and industry working on water-based paints, adhesives, emulsions, dispersions and coatings.
