Fluoroplastics, Volume 2

Melt Processible Fluoropolymers - The Definitive User's Guide and Data Book

Fluoroplastics, Volume 2 compiles in one place a working knowledge of the polymer chemistry and physics of melt processible fluoropolymers with detailed descriptions of commercial processing methods, material properties, fabrication and handling information, technologies, and applications. Also, history, market statistics, and safety and recycling aspects are covered. Both volumes contain a large amount of specific property data which is useful for users to readily compare different materials and align material structure with end use applications.Volume 2 concentrates on melt-processible fluoropolymers used across a broad range of industries including automotive, aerospace, electronic, food, beverage, oil/gas, and medical devices. Materials include fluorocopolymers and specific other fluorine-containing polymers, which are by-and-large melt-processible. Since the first edition was published many new technical developments and market changes have taken place and new grades of materials entered the market. This new edition is a thoroughly updated and significantly expanded revision covering new technologies and applications, and addressing the changes that have taken place in the fluoropolymer markets.

Fluoroplastics, Volume 2 is an all-encompassing handbook for melt processible fluoropolymers - unique reference for professionals in the fluoropolymer industry and fluoropolymer application industries.


Engineers and other professionals that use and process fluoropolymers across different industries in all important segments including automotive, aerospace, electronic, pharmaceutical, food, beverage, chemical processing industries, semiconductors, furniture, printing/publishing, lubricant oil/grease, oil/gas, medical devices, plastic compounders.

Professionals involved in polymer manufacturing and part fabrication.

End-users of fluoropolymers and students.
