Many coating materials which were technically important some 25 years ago are now obsolete. They have been replaced by a large variety of new paints, made from raw materials which did not exist in the 50s or 60s.This dictionary was compiled by reading several thousands of modern technical and scientific papers in the field of paint technology, and extracting relevant words and expressions. The resulting dictionary covers: the main chemicals used in manufacturing binders for the paint industry- the main raw materials used in manufacturing coating materials- the paint manufacturing techniques- substrates and their pretreatment- properties of ready-to-use coating materials- drying/hardening/curing characteristics of the applied coats- the main physical and mechanical properties of dried/hardened/cured paint coats and paint systems- paint application techniques- removal of (degraded) paint coats- paint defects- the main test methods.The dictionary is of great value to raw material producers, paint manufacturers, wholesale traders, professional applicators of coating materials, manufacturers/suppliers of equipment to produce, to apply or to test coating materials, as well as owners of painted constructions, manufacturers of finished industrial products, etc. (e.g. ship owners, automotive industry, offshore companies, institutional investors). It is also of practical value to those authorities and officials which are responsible for environmental health, safety and industrial hygiene.
