The Second Edition of this highly successful reference presents a thoroughly updated, systematic survey of organic coatings technology and its numerous applications. Written by three industry experts, this self-contained volume painstakingly revises and condenses the material from the previous, two-part edition—making it more useful for scientists and engineers first entering the field, as well as for students in coatings courses.

Incorporating recent developments, Organic Coatings: Science and Technology, Second Edition helps scientists, engineers, and paint for-mulators to better understand the principles underlying the technology and use them effectively in the development, production, and application of various types of coatings.

It correlates the technology to the current state of knowledge in the field, addressing the complexities inherent in the formulation process which are often overlooked in the professional literature.

The authors introduce readers to the subject with seven chapters on key properties of coatings, then proceed to cover raw materials (binders, solvents, pigments), physical concepts, formulations, and applications. Each topic is carefully summarized and accompanied by extensive references to sources of detailed information—particularly useful in self-study.

In addition to clearly defining industry terms, the book includes hundreds of figures as well as troubleshooting advice for organic, surface, polymer, and coatings scientists, engineers, and paint formulators in all branches of the coatings industry. The material is also applicable to the related areas of printing inks, adhesives, and parts of the plastics industry.

Substantially reorganized in this accessible, self-contained volume, Organic Coatings: Science and Technology, Second Edition provides a systematic, up-to-date survey of the principles underlying the production and use of organic coatings and paints. Complete with 250 figures, this immensely useful text/reference includes:
*New developments in the field since the publication of the First Edition
*Concise descriptions of raw materials, physical concepts, formulation, applications, and properties
*Troubleshooting guidance for coatings scientists and technologists
*Precise definitions of coatings industry terminology for newcomers to the field
*Extensive references reflecting current literature
*An appendix listing useful sources.
