Introduction to Paint Chemistry was first published in 1967 with the intention of providing both a textbook for students and an introduction to the subject for those with little or no technical knowledge. This remains the objective. The book was revised in 1980 and again in 1988, but change continues. In this fourth edition, we have sought to bring it up to date with the newest developments in the technology and, with an additional chapter, to add a perspective on the importance now given to safety and also to environmental issues in paint system design, manufacture and use. An additional feature is the attention that has been given to the use of nomenclature and units, attempting to reconcile current usage in both education and in industry, providing a bridge where these differ. The book is divided into two parts. Part One begins at the very basis of matter - its atomic structure - and works step by step through a sufficient selection of chemistry and physics to allow any interested reader to cope with the chemistry and the technology of paint in Part Two. The reader should absorb as much of Part One as he or she feels necessary.From the Publisher:
This work provides a comprehensive introduction to paint technology supported by the relevant aspects of chemistry and physics. It covers the basic science and is devoted to paint composition, formulation and drying mechanisms, paint ingredients such as solvents, pigments and additives, and the different paint groups by chemical type. Throughout the book the authors emphasize the factors which govern the choice of a particular paint for a particular job. This new edition has been thoroughly revised to modernize and clarify the text. Areas of new development have been added including environmental impacts, safety issues and modern paint making techniques. Nomenclature and units have also been updated and a glossary of technical terms added. This book should be of interest as a course text for paint technology students and technical staff concerned with the paint industry.
