Overview

This reference book provides a comprehensive overview of the nature, manufacture, structure, properties, processing, and applications of commercially available polymers.

The main feature of the book is the range of topics from both theory and practice, which means that physical properties and applications of the materials concerned are described in terms of the theory, chemistry and manufacturing constraints which apply to them. It will therefore enable scientists to understand the commercial implications of their work as well as providing polymer technologists, engineers and designers with a theoretical background.

Provides a comprehensive overview of commercially available polymers
Offers a unique mix of theory and application
Essential for both scientists and technologists

Audience: Materials scientists, engineers, and designers--students (reference) and professionals Manufacturing and process engineers/designers and industrial chemists.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
...an excellent general reference resource for engineers, chemists, technologists, and technicians, as well as students. Working definitions and explanations are given for nearly four hundred terms typically encountered in the industry. Most terms are also cross-referenced to other terminology so the reader can locate other areas as well. A wealth of tables, graphs and figures are liberally sprinkled throughout the book...Society for the Advancement of Material and Process Engineering Journal

Recommended as a solid, reliable addition to undergraduate through professional collections in polymer science, materials science, plastics, and engineering.-Choice

...will enable scientists to understand the commercial implications of their work as well as provide polymer technologists, engineers, and designers with a theoretical background. - Fachinformationszentrum Karlsruhe
