The Mission: To impart a comprehensive knowledge and
understanding of the physico-chemical aspects of pigment
use - from the physical properties of pigments to the
optical properties of pigmented systems and rheological
behaviour of pigment dispersions through to mill base optimisation.
It will provide every pigment technologist with
an essential overview of the state of the art.
The Audience: Chemists, physicists and paint technologists
taking their first steps to become acquainted with
pigment application technology in the pigment manufacturing
or processing industry. To make this monograph
accessible to the largest-possible technical group, the
mathematical treatment has been kept to the bare minimum.
Consequently, it will be of interest not only to
colourists, technicians and laboratory assistants engaged
in industrial pigment research, development, application
or production, but also to those in the relevant technical
universities and research institutes.
The Value: This book fills the gap left by most works on
the subject of pigments. It provides a practical comprehensive
description and explanation of the fundamental
principles of pigment processing, and will bring pigment
technologists fully up to date on the current understanding
of the physico-chemical principles of pigment application
technology, obviating the need for them to sift through
stacks of journals on the subject.
