The production of polymer latices has developed over the past half-century from pioneer status to a major industry with an annual production of over 6 million tonnes of polymers. Over this period, increased understanding of their many technical applications has extended the usefulness of water-based latices both technically and commercially. With present trends in ensuring environmental safety, water-based latices play an ever-increasing role, overcoming the limitations of water-soluble and solvent-based polymers in a diverse range of applications.
This title is one of a three volume set entitled The Applications of Synthetic Resin Latices, which discusses the preparation and application of specific groups of latices or polymer emulsions.
Volume 3 Latices in Surface Coatings: Diverse Applications covers the principles and practice of use of latex-based systems in building and construction products, paper coating, textile treatment, polishes, leather finishing and many other specialised applications.
