Full Description

The implications of globalization include the growing necessity for people everywhere to be working in a more global way. The growing international cooperation between professionals and clients in the field of Architectural Paint Research has highlighted the necessity of agreeing on standards in the way that samples are taken, analysed and recorded. The papers in this volume illustrate the problems involved in meeting this challenge. The importance of keeping up with present-day standards in the paint industry is also addressed.
