    The book includes traditional and developing technologies of production materials coating; unites all issues in the field of chemistry, physics and material engineering related coatings; presents all achievements in the field of coatings on the basis of literature from the years 2002-2012. The author, a researcher at the Middle East Technical University in Turkey, discussed in the technological problems in the design, formulation, receive, use and properties of solvent-based paints, water-borne and powder, taking account of paints for special purposes, such as paints for the shipbuilding industry, car or airplane and with special properties: self-cleaning samonaprawiających. Also analyzed exactly dependency properties coating materials – adhesion, hardness, durability, mechanical and optical properties the chemical composition and structure molecular products. Extensive knowledge and experience of the author, supported by innovative solutions, scientific, technological and production, make the book is a valuable source of information in the field of modern coating materials. The book consists of 22 chapters divided into subsections, including the most recent polymers, resins, solvents, pigments and fillers used today for the production of paints, varnishes and adhesives. After each chapter there is a list of the literature. Chapters 2-11 and 17-18 relate to traditional and new polymers resins products used in coatings. In most chapters Special attention was paid to the fast-growing hybrid layouts and hyperbranched. Posted numerous chemical formulas. They give an idea of the shape of particles or polymeric chains to be able to draw conclusions on the properties of the product end. Chapter 12 discusses issues relating to the solvents and in chapters 13-15 – for the pigments, further, important components paint shaping their final properties. Section 14 includes anticorrosive pigments, including organic coatings and inhibitors sol-gel, as well as interaction with the pigment surface of the substrate and a briefly test methods for corrosion-resistant coatings corrosive factors and the assessment methods of corrosion products. Significantly author devoted more attention to color pigments and fillers, which discussed in Chapter 13. Chapter 16 applies to milling operations, the types of mills and dispersants and auxiliaries used in the dispersing the pigments – of surfactants and dispersants. Violently developing environmentally friendly paints and powder curing UV devoted to chapters 17 and 18. In the chapter on paint powder noteworthy interesting photomicrographs illustrating the successive steps of running out on the surface of the powder for 2 min. at 100 ° C and the effect of temperature on crosslinking within one minute of paint based on the same polymer. Chapter 20 covers issues relating to the physical and mechanical the film properties including viscosity, thixotropy, foaming, pourability, drying time, temperature effect on film formation and the progress of the test methods of coating formation (atomic force microscope AFM, the measurement of contact angle and surface energy wave spectroscopy Distributed), to change the viscosity, coating thickness, adhesion, stress deformation, hardness, scratch resistance, abrasion, bending and impact. This section also provides information on retardant paints, including swelling. Last 22 Chapter relates to defects in paints and coatings. The author discusses in it, and illustrated, paint defects in the liquid state: bleed, Benard cells (a hexagonal pattern due to the currents flowing through the shell convection due to solvent evaporation), delamination and leaving pigments, orange peel and crocodiles, wrinkling, blistering, cratering, bleaching, haze, chalking and others.
