The many advances in polymers and their associated processes have rendered necessary this new edition from Mr Miles and Mr Briston- two very renowned and respected British authors.
Polymer and Material Scientists in industrial, academic and government laboratories, as well as researchers and managers who need to keep abreast of developments in Polymer Technology will find this an invaluable practical reference source.
New additions include sections on Stretch Blow Molding, Multi-layer (Coextrusion), Bottle Blowing, and Decoration of Plastics, with a new chapter on Thermoplastic Polyesters.
The MATERIAL Chapters (Thermosets and Thermoplastics, Natural Polymers and Derivatives; Rubberlike Polymers, Inorganic Polymers, Compounding Ingredients), were updated to include linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE), pearlescent polypropylene, amorphous nylons (Selar PA), poly (ethylene terephthalate) (PET), ethlyene/vinyl alcohol copolymers (EVOH), poly (ethermide) (Ultem), and poly (etheretherketone) (PEEK).
The updated chapters on PROCESSING (Compression and Transfer Molding, Extrusion, Injection Molding and Blow Molding, Thermoforming, Powder Coating, Miscellaneous Processing Techniques) take account of developments in Powder Coating, Coextrusion, Injection and Blow Molding, Solid Phase Pressure Forming, and Thermoforming (including blister and skin packaging).
The TESTING Chapter (Physical and Chemical Testing of Plastics) as well as the APPLICATION aspects are updated and expanded to include Water Vapor.
The section on Optical Tests has also been updated and enlarged.
