About this Book

All color phenomena that we can observe in coatings have their origin in the interaction between the coating material and visible light. This interaction produces absorption and scattering, which in practice determine the optical behavior of materials. This book is a complete treatment focusing on theoretical and practical aspects of testing pigments, dyes, and pigmented and dyed coatings. It provides basic knowledge for newcomers in the field and serves as a reference work for experts, answering questions arising in the production, processing and application of coloring materials in binders.

'... it is the best advanced book available on color science as it applies to coatings. The book is recommended to all those who need to understand and control color.'
Gordon Bierwagen, Progress in Organic Coatings
'This is a beautifully crafted book that treats the subject of testing pigments for coatings in a complete and logical fashion. ... The thorough coverage of the subject recommends the book to anyone who might be even remotely interested in the subject ...'
Frederick T. Simon
'... it is the only book of its kind, and should be of great value to scientists producing colorants and technicians using them ...'
Fred W. Billmeyer Jr., Color Research and Application
'For producers, processors and users of coloring agents, pigmented and dyed materials who need accurate information at their fingertips, Volz and his reference work leave no questions unanswered.'
