Industrial Water-Based Paint Formulations.

Industrial Water-Based Paint Formulations By Ernest W. Flick (Noyes Publications, Mill Road at Grand Avenue, Park Ridge, NJ 07656, 1988, 272 pp., US$42.00). The book consists of 220 water-based industrial paint formulations. The formulae were obtained from a variety of raw material suppliers in the United States.

Coatings for a very wide selection of end-uses are present. Included in the compilation are the more common air-dry and baking systems as well as more specialized coil and protective coatings.

The author has attempted to provide, when possible, all the information valuable to the coating formulator. Physical properties including viscosity, solids, gloss, pencil hardness, density and adhesion are provided with each formulation. It is unfortunate that some raw material suppliers have not included some of this information with their recommended formulations. Valuable mixing suggestions are also included with the formulae. A section of the book lists raw materials by trade name together with their chemical description and supplier's name. This list provides an excellent aid for those unfamiliar with individual raw materials.

This book would provide the coating formulator with a valuable tool to aid in producing water-based industrial coatings. The formulae offer an excellent starting point for the formulator to produce coatings tailored for a specific need.
