Editorial Reviews

Chemical Research and Design
"...a good balance of theory and the pragmatic...provides a unique overview and reference of the field of modifiers and additives."
Journal of the Institute of Materials
a guide to the future developments in additives....Any organization involved in the developments and use of additives in polymers should have a copy in their libraries.
Booknews
Outlines the state of the art for modifying the properties and processability of polymers through addition of other substances. The first of the 13 papers clarify primary and secondary antioxidants and chemical and physical differences with UV stabilizers, and explain the use of pigments for coloration. Following papers reveal disparities among coupling agents, surface modifiers and wetting agents, and review flame retardants and smoke suppressants. Impact modifiers, glass fiber reinforcement, heat stabilizers for halogenated polymers, lubricants, optical brighteners, solid fillers, liquid fillers, and blowing agents are all covered in separate chapters. The closing chapter highlights specialty additives that reduce electrostatic charge and interfere with biological growth. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
