Rheology for Paints and Coatings

Q. Where can I find information about rheology for coatings

A. The Federation of Societies for Coating Technology has several outstanding monographs and books on subjects concerning paint and coating technologies. These include resins, solvents, pigments, extender pigments, rheology, film forming mechanisms, painting of plastics, paint making and much more. All of these can be purchased from the Federation's Book Store. I urge you to browse their website and select the topics that most apply to your needs.

Another excellent book is the European Coatings Handbook, Edited by Ulrich Zorll, Publisher Curt R. Vincentz, Verlag, Hanover, Germany dated 2000. This is definitely a text book for those who are serious about paint technology. You can order the book here.
