The course provides an introduction to paint technology. It will explain why paints are used and the different functional types covering all aspects of decoration and protection. The major building blocks including polymers, pigments and additives will be described and the constraints that relate to different markets. Other aspects include manufacture and application. The question of what makes a good paint will be discussed in terms of performance and test methods, against the background of legislation and the pressure for sustainability and a low carbon footprint. A commercial overview indicating the major market sectors both decorative and industrial is also included.
Designed for anyone who is either a newcomer to a paint related field or does not have a scientific background. It will be particularly useful to sales and marketing personnel.
For anyone who has a knowledge of chemistry and needs a more comprehensive coverage of the technology of paint coatings you may find the Paint Technology course more suitable.
