    "Having been in the coatings industry for over 30 years, I know how useful the Gardner-Sward Manual can be. For years I have relied on the 14th edition of this fine book to answer many of my paint-testing questions, but a lot has changed in the industry since it was published in 1995. I know a lot of hard work has gone into preparing the new and updated 15th edition, and I am really looking forward to it."
    Dwight Weldon, President, Weldon Laboratories

    79 comprehensive chapters, written by experts in their various fields, reflect the new and updated technologies within the paint and coating industry in the 16 years since the last edition was published. This heavily updated new manual describes briefly and critically most ASTM test methods that are significant in the world of paint technology.

    New and updated topics include:
    • Measurement of gonioapparent colorants
    • Surfactants
    • Powder coatings
    • Understanding osmotic activity in coatings
    • Coalescing aids
    • Radiation-curable powder coatings
    • And much more!

    This edition is a valuable guide to the topics, test methods, procedures, and standards of ASTM and other national and international organizations.
