Chemical Resistance of Thermoplastics is a unique reference work, providing a comprehensive cross-referenced compilation of chemical resistance data that explains the effect of thousands of exposure media on the properties and characteristics of commodity thermoplastics.
The two volumes cover thermoplastics grouped within the following parts:
- Acrylic Polymers and Copolymers
- Acrylonitrile Polymers
- Cellulosics Polymers
- Olefinic Polymers
- Styrene Copolymers
- Styrene Copolymers
- Vinyl Chloride Polymers
- Vinyl Polymers
- The single most comprehensive data source covering the chemical resistance properties of high consumption volume commercial thermoplastics
- A rating number is provided for each test, summarizing the effect of the exposure medium on the given thermoplastic
- The data covered in the two volumes is also provided as an online publication offering extended navigation and search features
Engineers and Scientists involved in designing and working with plastics across a range of sectors such as basic chemical processing industries; Food and Beverage, Pharmaceutical and Biopharmaceutical; Aerospace, Automotive and other transportation; Defense; Medical Devices; Semiconductors
