Most recent volume


Volume . Handbook of Thermoplastic Fluoropolymers

Published: 1st July 2022 Authors: Laurence McKeen Sina Ebnesajjad

Handbook of Thermoplastic Fluoropolymers gathers key technical information about structure, characteristics, properties and processing methods of commercial thermoplastic fluoropolymers in one easy reference.

Thermoplastic fluoropolymers have many desirable functional characteristics, such as high thermal stability, reliability at high mechanical loads, a wide range of operating temperatures, and high chemical and radiation stability. These characteristics make them crucial in many specialist applications, including in the military, biopharmaceuticals, and environmental protection. This uniquely comprehensive guide to this versatile family of polymers will help processors, fabricators and end-users to find new innovative solutions using thermoplastic fluoropolymers. Detailed coverage of technical details of processing methods, characteristics, and chemical properties of commercial thermoplastic fluoropolymers all in one place make this the most authoritative reference to the subject available.
