|Summary:||• Features a comprehensive list of techniques, characterizing coating films formation, their final properties and aging, as well as an in-depth discussion of each technique; • Maximizes understanding of testing methods and their physical background and provides correlations of characterization results with coatings structure or properties using detailed examples; • Describes special characterization techniques such as magnetic microrheology, in-situ infrared spectroscopy under controlled humidity, long-term in-situ stress measurement of coatings with capacitive sensors, and advanced nano-scratch testing; • Deepens understanding of spray of liquid coatings, drying, curing, network development and structural heterogeneity, modulus development, stress development, swelling of networks, scratch and mar resistance, coating appearance, defect formation,|
< This book is designed for coating professionals to gain deeper understanding of characterization techniques and to select the right ones to solve their coating problems. It is ideal for both experienced and early career scientists and engineers. Also, it is useful for graduate students in the general area of protective coatings.
and durability; • Introduces modeling of cross-linking during film formation and build-up of film properties with the aim to predict the effects of changes of binder systems and film formation conditions
This book focuses on characterization of organic coatings by different testing methods and understanding of structure formation and materials properties. The knowledge of protective organic coatings and current test methods is based largely on empirical experience. This book aims at explaining the coating property changes during film drying and curing in terms of chemical and physical transformations. Current test methods are reviewed with emphasis on understanding their physical basis and expressing the test results in terms of comparable physical quantities. In general, this book provides readers a deeper understanding of the binder design, coating film formation process, properties build-up, appearance and defect formation, and automotive paint application. It also suggests manifold ways to improving the coatings performance.
