  • Advanced chemistries for improving coatings’ properties and performance
  • New technologies for additives, dispersants, pigments and multifunctional coatings

Continuing a series, the present volume comprises a selection of 31 original research papers from industry and academia on the chemistry and formulation of technical coatings, beginning with keynote discussions of the meaning of glass transition and POSS. The book offers guidance to performance improvements by chemical modification of additives, dispersants, and cross-linkers, as well as new approaches using nanomaterials, graphene, and polymer brush chemistry. Attention is given to VOC reduction, enhanced hiding capacity, weatherability, dispersion and more.
