Now in its second edition and still the only book of its kind, this is an authoritative treatment of all stages of the coating process -- from body materials, paint shop design, and pre-treatment, through primer surfacers and top coats. New topics of interest covered are color control, specification and testing of coatings, as well as quality and supply concepts, while valuable information on capital and legislation aspects is given.
Invaluable for engineers in the automotive and paints and coatings industry as well as for students in the field.
