Coatings Formulation

The new second revised edition of the book Coatings Formulation provides detailed explanations of new recipes and paint formulations in two steps: It opens with a look at the composition of coatings, placing special emphasis on the base binder in each type. Advice on specific formulations is then given before formulation guidelines are analysed. This analysis consists in calculating the important characteristic values of coatings, such as the pigment/binder ratio, ­pigment volume concentration and, as necessary, the hardener addition level. Throughout, the focus is on coatings formulation and how to arrive at the final recipe. Examples of how to develop a real-life paint formulation are provided in the case of the most important types of coatings. All calculations based on recipes and formulations are worked through step by step and should therefore be intelligible to beginners, as well.
