Publisher Comments:

Written by an industry-based author with extensive R&D experience, this practical book provides a comprehensive and detailed analysis of available technologies, design strategies and applications.

Special attention is given to summarizing different characterization techniques for the evaluation of easy/self-cleaning properties, while also describing such essential health and environmental topics, as antibacterial, water and air purification applications.

This first book to discuss in detail the applied field of photocatalytic and lotus effect coatings is an essential guide for anyone working in the paints and coatings industry.

About the Author
