The most comprehensive book on material weathering has been updated since its first edition in 1988. It reviews all current publications. It deals with important current issues such as material durability, conservation of energy and resources and protection of environment.

The book addresses theory (principles of photophysics and photochemistry in application to weathering), stress factors (radiation, temperature, water, pollutants, and stress), methods of measurement (40 groups of analytical methods of specimen testing), climatic conditions, methods of weathering (complete description of techniques used in outdoor and laboratory exposures), weathering effect, polymer degradation (42 groups of polymers and rubbers), weathering of different products (31 groups of different products), effect of process additives on weathering, stabilization, biodegradation, environmental stress cracking, recycling, corrosion and deterioration of stones in historical monuments.
