Developing a method for ensuring the quality of painted surfaces for building products and structures, and developing control methods, is an important scientific, technical and economic problem. Coatings that finish the facades of buildings must be high-quality in appearance. The conditions needed depend largely on the rheological properties of paint, and the processes of wetting and application, with different variables for metal or concrete structures. Increasing the Durability of Paint and Varnish Coatings in Building Products and Construction presents data and analysis on regularities in the appearance quality of protective and decorative coatings for building products and structures, and the relationship between the resistance of coatings and the quality of their appearance. Six chapters offer a significant contribution to increasing the service life of protective and decorative coatings.
