Coatings R&D Notebook
Various issues related to coating techniques are discussed. It is suggested that additives are employed to modify the performance of coatings and enhance specific application and dry-film performance properties. The use of stabilizers in coatings is often essential to improve the long-term service properties of the coatings. The development of high-quality coating systems requires the use of special energy-related chemical-reaction mechanisms to enable the formation of complex network structures.
