Book Description: This series seeks to publish practical, applications orientated books designed for professional chemists employed in the paints and coatings industry, and reflecting technological developments, environmental concerns and increasing demand for higher volume production in emerging markets. The books in the series should provide insights into industrial methods which have traditionally been trade secrets. Each book in this series has been prepared for paint and ink technologists involved with specific product-related technical areas. Each aspect of the technology is reviewed by a team of senior practising chemists within the UK synthetic resins, paint, printing ink and coatings industries. This volume features: amino, melamine, urea, polyamide and phenolic crosslink systems; and waterborne and solvent based with detailed chemistry, technology and formulations for paints and inks for all substrates.
