Comparative Examinations of Cleaned Paint Surfaces

Editor(s): Paul-Bernhard Eipper
Subject: Science

Book Description

This volume explains four different methods for examining paint surfaces. It adopts several examination tools to compare untreated and treated surfaces of oil and acrylic paints, such as scanning electron microscopy (SEM), computer-aided laser profilometry, environmental scanning electron microscopy (ESEM) and 3D-measurement technology.

Samples of historic oil paints, contemporary oil paints, and modern acrylic paints, are examined within, using subjective and objective measurements, to reveal ideal surface cleaning systems and methods for painting surfaces. The book presents tests of several surface active materials on oil paints and acrylic paint surfaces, including latex sponges and demineralized water, saliva, cellulose ethers, anionic and nonionic detergents, and microporous sponges.
