Overview

The Basics of Troubleshooting in Plastics Processing is a condensed practical guide that gives the reader a broad introduction to properties of thermoplastics plastics, additives, the major processes (extrusion, injection molding, rotational molding, blow molding, and thermoforming), as well as troubleshooting.   The main goal is to provide the plastics processor with an improved understanding of the basics by explaining the science behind the technology. Machine details are minimized as the emphasis is on processing problems and the defects in an effort to focus on basic root causes to problems and how to solve them.

The book’s framework is troubleshooting in plastics processing because of the importance it has to the eventual production of high quality end products. Each chapter contains both practical and detailed technical information.

This basic guide provides state-of-the-art information on:

  • Processing problems and defects during manufacturing
  • Plastics materials, their properties and characterization
  • The plastics processing techniques
  • Plastics additives 
  • Troubleshooting of the 5 main plastics processes
  • References for further reading
