Handbook of Fillers, 3e
- George Wypych, ChemTec Publishing, Ontario, Canada
Fillers are added to materials such as plastics and composites to reduce costs and to improve and modify the properties of the material. Key sectors using fillers include plastics, rubber, paints, adhesives and paper, with the global fillers market valued at about $35 billion. Recent developments in the field of nanoparticles have led to a range of new fillers, covered for the first time in the 3e of this classic data handbook.
Handbook of Fillers, 3e, contains information based on the analysis of over 3,500 research papers, mostly published from 1994 to 2009 (more than half were published after the 2e), technical data received from over 200 filler manufacturers and equipment manufacturing, and relevant patent literature.
