Alkyd resins are the synthetic resins which have a dominant position among the synthetic resins with respect of production volume and the frequency of the use in paint and varnish materials. Despite the growing popularity of acrylic, polyurethane and epoxy resins, alkyd resins remain highly favoured among paint producers for its variability of compositions and better value for money.
Experts believe that the total consumption of paint and varnish materials will rise to a great extent in the coming years. Both cost-wise and performance wise, alkyds have proven themselves over a wide swathe of demands, from agriculture/construction equipment to general industrial metal and even architectural finishes.
This Book contains alkyd formulation, modification of alkyds, styrene copolymers in alkyd resins, copolymerization of alkyd silicon, polyblends of polystyrene glycol and alkyd in surface coatings, alkyd calculations, and alkyd nomograms. This book will find very helpful to all its readers, entrepreneurs, scientists, technical institution, existing industries, paint technologist etc.
