Handbook of Antistatics book cover

Handbook of Antistatics

This is the first comprehensive handbook written on the subject of antistatic additives for polymers. These are additives capable of modifying properties of materials in such a way they become antistatic, conductive, and/or EMI shielding. The book contains 22 chapters, each addressing a specific aspect of properties and applications of antistatic agents. The comprehensive analysis of performance of these materials forms a critical source of information for industry, research, academia, and legislature.

Research and development, production chemists and engineers, environmental engineers, environmental professionals, industrial hygienists, legislators, medical professionals, civil engineers, university professors, students.
