Applications of Synthetic Resin Latices: Fundamental Chemistry of Latices and Applications in Adhesives v. 1
This book covers the fundamental chemistry of latices and their applications in adhesives. These water-based latices are playing a far greater role in many applications and match the growing concern over environmental safety. This book is available separately or as part of a 3-volume set and offers an insight into the advances and developments in this field. Introduces the principles and practice of emulsion polymerisation and of the resulting latices and their properties Includes alkali-solubility, in relation to the requirements of specific applications, including pigmented systems and technical latices Contains a comprehensive account of the formulation of latex-based adhesives for the bonding of many different substances As a comprehensive account of the science of polymer latices, these volumes are an invaluable resource for research workers and end-users in academia and industry working on water-based paints, adhesives, emulsions, dispersions and coatings.
