Description : This new designed reprint describes the latest developments and tendencies in coating technology. The emphasis is placed on coating applications like automobile production coating, coil coating, automobile repair coating and industrial coating in general. From product composition, raw materials, principles of product formulation and the relevant production processes over theoretical aspects of coating composition to applications and the substrate's impact on the coating process - the BASF Handbook on Basics of Coating Technology covers all these topics concisely and every time right on target. Additionally a journey is taken through the various industrial sectors of the paint and coatings industry with the aid of a large number of examples and illustrations. Particularly interesting for newcomers to the industry and practically-minded readers. Standard tables, general performance indicators, definitions of terms and a comprehensive index round off this worldwide well-known standard work: a classic - simply indispensable!
Description : Now in its second edition and still the only book of its kind, this is an authoritative treatment of all stages of the coating process -- from body materials, paint shop design, and pre-treatment, through primer surfacers and top coats. New topics of interest covered are color control, specification and testing of coatings, as well as quality and supply concepts, while valuable information on capital and legislation aspects is given. Invaluable for engineers in the automotive and paints and coatings industry as well as for students in the field.
Description : Adhesives have been used for thousands of years, but until 100 years ago, the vast majority was from natural products such as bones, skins, fish, milk, and plants. Since about 1900, adhesives based on synthetic polymers have been introduced, and today, there are many industrial uses of adhesives and sealants. It is difficult to imagine a product—in the home, in industry, in transportation, or anywhere else for that matter—that does not use adhesives or sealants in some manner. The Handbook of Adhesion Technology is intended to be the definitive reference in the field of adhesion. Essential information is provided for all those concerned with the adhesion phenomenon. Adhesion is a phenomenon of interest in diverse scientific disciplines and of importance in a wide range of technologies. Therefore, this handbook includes the background science (physics, chemistry and materials science), engineering aspects of adhesion and industry specific applications. It is arranged in a user-friendly format with ten main sections: theory of adhesion, surface treatments, adhesive and sealant materials, testing of adhesive properties, joint design, durability, manufacture, quality control, applications and emerging areas. Each section contains about five chapters written by internationally renowned authors who are authorities in their fields. This book is intended to be a reference for people needing a quick, but authoritative, description of topics in the field of adhesion and the practical use of adhesives and sealants. Scientists and engineers of many different backgrounds who need to have an understanding of various aspects of adhesion technology will find it highly valuable. These will include those working in research or design, as well as others involved with marketing services. Graduate students in materials, processes and manufacturing will also want to consult it.
Description : This extensively revised and updated second edition of the only data handbook available on the properties of commercial polymeric films details the permeability characteristics of over 125 major plastic and elastomer packaging materials. New to this edition are 92 resin chapters containing textual summary information including: category, general description, processing methods, applications, and general permeability considerations for water vapor, oxygen, and other gases including aroma and flavor. The product data is presented in graphical and tabular format, retaining the familiar format of the first edition and allowing easy comparison between materials and test conditions.
Description : Despite the advances in understanding the phenomena that occur on a catalyst surface, much of the successful catalyst development and use continues to be half science and half art. The art resides in the practical knowledge of experts in the development and use of commercial catalysts-it comes with experience. Now the background needed to nurture the experience and inspire the art is collected along with the science into a single volume. Whether called upon to select or improve a catalyst, design a process, diagnose operating problems, or improve existing processes, the Handbook of Commercial Catalysts provides the information needed to form a basis for the task. It offers a starting point by providing a broad overview of 150 major commercial processes and the heterogeneous catalyst used for each. The author has arranged them according to specific reaction or reaction type, and supplies reference citations for deeper research. He offers valuable insghts-based on chemistry, thermodynamics, and surface science-that provide a framework for rational reasoning about catalyst performance. With data collected from the existing literature, from the in-house specialists of commercial vendors, and from his own extensive experience, the author discusses for each reaction: Product uses Chemistry Mechanism Catalyst type Catalyst suppliers and licensors Catalyst deactivation Catalyst regeneration Process units Process kinetics Armed with this information, the reader can begin rational analysis of an existing or planned reaction system and logically discuss catalyst characteristics and operations with technical representative of catalyst manufacturers and with colleagues.
Description : This book is the ideal basic guide for anyone who is about to start working with metallic pigments but also contains a wealth of information for those who already use these pigments. It is hoped that this book will help existing users to achieve the best possible effects with metallic pigments and encourage those who have not yet used them to explore their potential to add value to their products.
