The book deals with the applications of modern analysis techniques in paint analysis with a special focus on surface analysis. Topics covered include: surface cleaning, and how to be sure a visually 'clean' surface is truly free from residues before applying a coating; ensuring the paint and painted substrate match on a chemical basis, in order to achieve good adhesion results; pretreatments to improve paint adhesion; ingredients of paint, and how they behave with respect to the surface to be painted; the effect paint additives have on paint adhesion; the effect polymer substrates, including various polymer additives, have on paint adhesion; new polymer types and polymer additives used in the automotive industry, and their implications for paint manufacture and application. The questions surrounding paint adhesion often can't be answered by simple tests or classical chemical analysis because they require the ability to analyse very small amounts of substances with a high surface sensitivity at the same time. Roger Dietrich sets out in detail the methods needed for these analytical processes. It is a practical guide to the techniques of paint analysis, from methodology to the interpretation of results. It gives full coverage of key aspects such as surface cleaning, adhesion, paint ingredients and additives. It explores the effect of polymer substrates and their additives to paint adhesion, including new polymers used in the automotive more
