Automotive Paints and Coatings
Wiley, Jan 18, 1995 - Science - 241 pages
Dedicated wholly to automotive coatings, this book is the first of its kind. It provides an in-depth coverage of the subject and in keeping with the international nature of the automotive business the book has a truly multinational flavour with authors selected from Australia, Japan, Europe and the USA. An authoritative and informative treatment of all aspects of coatings formulation are presented together with their manufacture and application. Numerous chapters written by experts in the field deal with substrate pretreatment, undercoats, surfacers and topcoats. Finishes for both metals and non-metallics are described as well as speciality coatings such as sealers, antichip and underbody paints. Further valuable information on commercial support for the sale of finishes in the automotive industry and the licensing of technology is also given.
Specialists involved in a wide range of disciplines in the coatings industry including chemists, chemical engineers and commercial staff will find this up-to-date source of exceptional interest.
