This volume discusses latices in surface coatings in regards to emulsion paints. These water-based latices are playing a far greater role in many applications and match the growing concern over environmental safety. This book is available separately or as part of a 3-volume set and offers an insight into the advances and developments in this field. <ul> <li> Describes the principles of the formulation, manufacture and application properties of water-based 'emulsion' paints and related surface coatings <li> Includes inter alia gloss and anti-corrosion paints and electrocoating </ul> As a comprehensive account of the science of polymer latices, these volumes are an invaluable resource for research workers and end-users in academia and industry working on water-based paints, adhesives, emulsions, dispersions and coatings. <P>
