The market demands modern, high-performance and flawless paints that have specified properties. When deviations from the set points occur, the cause must be investigated and the error must be corrected. What the “standard methods” do not reveal is why a particular coating meets or does not meet a requirement. Thus, the author presents modern analytical techniques and their applications in the coatings industry which answer other complex questions. The information in this book can be used to perform failure analysis, production control and quality control, and also meet the demands of modern high-level quality management. An excellent combination of theory and practice for formulators, paint engineers and applied technologists looking for a solid, basic introduction to the instrumental analysis of paint and concrete answers to everyday problems.
