Engineers and scientists creating and using polyolefins compounds will find in this book a wealth of detail and practical guidance. This unique resource will enable them to make practical decisions about the use of the various additives, fillers, and reinforcements specific to this family of materials. Tolinski has demystified the world of additives by providing non-academic explanations of their purpose and use.
With major sections for each additive function, this book provides a highly practical guide for the end-user deploying polyolefins in an industrial setting in a wide range of applications such as automobile parts, packaging, pipes, textiles and toys. Although readers will need a basic understanding of what polyolefin polymers are and how they're typically used, they will not need to be organic chemists.
