What “standard methods” don’t disclose is why a particular coating either meets or fails to meet a requirement. Thus the author presents modern analytical techniques and their applications in the coatings industry that answer further complex questions. The information in this book can be used for performing failure analysis, production control and quality control, and also meet the requirements of modern high-level quality management. It can act as a reference for explaining why a coating or production failure has occurred and at the same time provide inspiration for an analytical solution. An excellent combination of theory and practice for engineers and technicians engaged in coatings production, application and substrate production.
