The term 'paint' and 'surface coating' are often used interchangeably. Surface coating is the more general description of any material that may be applied as a thin continuous layer to a surface. Paints are not only used to colour surfaces and make them attractive, they can protect and extend the lifetime of the coated substrate. Paints are complex mixtures of organic and inorganic ingredients of polymer particles, pigments, extenders, diluents and additives. This book presents topical research data in the study of paints, including paint analysis for forensic purposes and heritage objects; cool paint technologies for urban heat buildings; selection of coating techniques for sustainability; environmentally friendly paints; intumescent powder coatings; as well as studying the antimicrobial properties of silver nanoparticle-embedded paints.
