Plastics Compendium, 1 by M. C. Hough, R. Dolbey

By M. C. Hough, R. Dolbey

A finished selection of professionally demonstrated, comparative facts, at the most generally used plastics fabrics. The Plastics Compendium covers thermoplastics, thermosets, composites and thermoplastic elastomers.

The homes and processability of plastics fabrics are topic to a few impacts. elements comparable to chemical structure, molecular weight and measure of crystallinity are essentially of basic value, yet they don't inform the complete tale. advertisement grades of plastics include reinforcing brokers and fillers, plasticisers and lubricants, that may increase one point of a material's functionality while diminishing one other. exact facts at the functionality of the main largely on hand changed grades are accordingly crucial whilst specifying fabrics for ever extra challenging purposes. The relative expenses of fabrics can also be major while huge construction runs are deliberate or if a few fabrics meet the necessary functionality standards. a lot of these points are addressed within the Plastics Compendium; a special source from Rapra know-how restricted.

Volume 1 of The Plastics Compendium comprises truly awarded information on 351 familiar and changed fabric forms, within the following major sections:

Property and advertisement facts sheets

An alphabetical exchange identify index

A directory of providers’ (or their agents’) addresses, including cellphone, telex and fax numbers, in as much as 15 eu international locations and the united states

A distinctive alphabetical index to the fabrics for which info are indexed.

The estate and advertisement facts sheets offer 3 kinds of details:

Textual info provided within the type of benefits, hazards and average functions

Materials info; directory values of 24 key homes (where appropriate) for all 351 fabrics (including mechanical and electric houses, flammability, instructed fabric drying time and moulding temperature, mold shrinkage, greatest working temperature, water absorption and price) resource info; directory providers and their exchange names

Polymer Science and Technology by Joel R. Fried

By Joel R. Fried

This textbook presents an outstanding advent to polymers, their processing, purposes, and houses. The booklet assumes minimum earlier wisdom of polymers, and starts off with an easy intro to houses corresponding to glass transition temperature, molecular weight, thermoplastic as opposed to thermoset.

Electrical, mechanical, and chemical houses of polymers are mentioned and concerning the constitution and composition of the fabric.

The publication is equipped rather well. It contains committed chapters on synthesis, processing, degradation, and for different periods of polymers. every one bankruptcy is brief and will stand on my own on its own. a quick checklist of references is additionally supplied on the finish of every bankruptcy, and those are prepared in line with the various sections in every one bankruptcy.

The point of the textual content is acceptable for juniors or seniors in engineering or chemistry. the maths is saved at an easy point; not anything tougher than crucial calculus, and there are lots of images and diagrams. the quantity and scope of knowledge additionally warrants deciding to buy this as a normal reference for polymers.

I suggest this ebook in case you are studying approximately, or instructing approximately polymers.

Prediction of Polymer Properties (Plastics Engineering) by Jozef Bicerano

By Jozef Bicerano

Highlighting a wide diversity multiscale modeling and techniques for expecting the morphologies and the houses of interfaces and multiphase fabrics, this reference covers the technique of predicting polymer houses and its capability software to a much broader number of polymer forms than formerly idea attainable. A accomplished resource, the e-book positive factors discussions of the interaction among thermodynamic and kinetic elements in multiphase fabrics, analytical and numerical tools for predicting thermoelastic and shipping houses of multiphase fabrics, mechanical houses less than huge deformation, and effect of interfaces through simulations.

Chemical Resistance of Specialty Thermoplastics by William Woishnis, Visit Amazon's Sina Ebnesajjad Page,

By William Woishnis, Visit Amazon's Sina Ebnesajjad Page, search results, Learn about Author Central, Sina Ebnesajjad,

Whereas the two-volume paintings Chemical Resistance of Thermoplastics covers chemical resistance of high-volume advertisement (commodity) thermoplastics, this quantity makes a speciality of excessive functionality 'engineering' or 'specialty' thermoplastics. those thermoplastics are typically ate up in smaller volumes, yet have fascinating features for challenging and high-value purposes.

This booklet presents wide information on chemical resistance exams, and fabric chemical resistance houses for vital uniqueness thermoplastics together with polyarylenes, polymimides and fluoropolymers, polymer alloys and strong point polyethylenes.

The chemical resistance information supplied allows the reader to make a greater fabric choice selection, warding off the key monetary and company affects of fabric failure, and often times getting rid of the necessity for screening assessments. the knowledge supplies special details at the parameters of publicity of plastics and their assorted grades to chemical substances and environmental stipulations, i.e. chemical compound or solvent, focus, temperature, the size of time a plastic can face up to such assaults (with, for instance, weight swap as a key parameter) and so on. - answering key questions usually coming up within the means of product development.

This quantity is available in an easy-to-use print structure - together with an inventory of publicity media permitting cross-referencing to the most fabric facts tables - in addition to a web database with a longer facts set, and complex seek and navigation features.

  • The unmarried so much entire facts resource protecting the chemical resistance houses of thermoplastics
  • A must-have reference for these designing and dealing in sectors the place thermoplastics come into touch with corrosive or reactive substances
  • This re-creation contains new chapters that supply the underpinning wisdom had to totally comprehend and practice the knowledge within the facts sections
  • In the print version of this ebook, the knowledge lined within the volumes also are supplied on a CD-ROM (compatible with home windows XP, home windows Vista and home windows 7 working platforms) delivering prolonged navigation and seek features

Handbook of plastic foams : types, properties, manufacture, by Arthur H. Landrock

By Arthur H. Landrock

This publication is meant to be a resource of useful info on every kind of plastic foams (cellular plastics) in use, together with the recent structural plastic foams. Elastomer (rubber-like) foams also are thought of. The publication is meant basically in case you require a non-theoretical, authoritative, easy-to-use instruction manual within the topic zone. it may be of worth to fabrics engineers, plastics fabricators, chemists, chemical engineers and scholars. well-known professionals have written numerous chapters and components of chapters of their fields of craftsmanship. The ebook is geared up in one of these means that info on a wanted topic are available quickly. An strange function is a finished directory of all recognized standardization files (test equipment, practices, and specifications), together with a few foreign criteria. every one rfile encompasses a short description of its contents
