- Methods for high-throughput coatings research and development
This 664-page volume contains dozens of original investigations into the materials, chemistry, formulation and applications of waterborne coatings. The text is divided into sections on corrosion, powder coatings, UV-curing, nanocoatings, additives, high-throughput, and pigments. Chapters focus on technologies for improving the performance and processability of coatings in themselves and as adhered to metals and plastics. Novel chemistry is explained demonstrating the link between polymeric structure and superior coating properties, e.g., adhesion, anti-fouling, fire-resistance, reduced curing/drying time, and more. Attention is given to emerging developments in stimuli-response coatings, nanoparticles and dispersion, and new testing techniques. The book also discusses emerging methods for high-throughput research and faster coatings development time.
