This fully-illustrated, 631-page hardcover from the author of “Protective Coatings: Fundamentals of Chemistry and Composition” presents a scientific approach to the analysis and prevention of common paint and coating failures on industrial, commercial, and residential structures. It begins with a close look at the structure, composition and properties of polymers used in the formulation of modern paints and coatings, followed by a systematic consideration of failures induced by weather, corrosion, mechanical and chemical influence, light, heat, and other agents. The book also discusses adhesion failures and blistering, failures on substrates other than steel (cement, concrete, wood, zinc, aluminum, other metals), failures specific to primers, and failures resulting from deterioration during storage.
