A fundamental understanding of mechanical behavior is crucial for formulating coatings that achieve the desired aesthetic and protective properties. This up-to-date second edition helps coatings professionals better appreciate the intricate relationship between chemical composition and mechanical behavior. Mechanical Properties of Coatings provides insight into the fundamentals of mechanical behavior of coatings—from the most basic concepts of stress and strain, to the more complex area of fracture mechanics. Topics covered include: Mechanical behavior of polymeric binders; Failure of polymeric materials; Coating-specific mechanical behavior; Applied mechanical properties; and Historically significant test methods, as well as standard tests for hardness, flexibility, impact resistance, and post formability.

This 84-page, softcover book is an indispensable tool for technical coatings professionals—formulators, research and development chemists, students, and technical support personnel. Managers and sales staff who want to know more about the performance of their products will also benefit.
