This important reference book details over 100 types of surface coatings, coverings and treatments for the painter and decorator, with more than 60 types of preparatory and ancillary products. It therefore brings together in one handbook all basic information on decorative and protective products in general use on buildings and generally available from decorators' merchants. Each product has a fully detailed specification for its use, many of which are presented in tabular form for ease of reference. The book may prove a useful reference for decorators, and for decorators' and builders' mechants who are called on to advise their customers. It is designed as an aid to specifiers and to students taking the City and Guilds syllabus for painting and decorating.show more
