5. Other Thermosets
Chemical Resistance of Commodity Thermoplastics provides a comprehensive, cross-referenced compilation of chemical resistance data that explains the effect of thousands of reagents, the environment and other exposure media on the properties and characteristics of thermosets – plastics which are used in a range of applications.
Specifically, the resistance data in this book covers the following materials:
- Unsaturated Polyester Resin Resin
- Unsaturated Polyurethane Resin
- Vinyl Ester Resin
- Furan Resin
- Filled/Reinforced Thermosets
A huge range of exposure media are included from aircraft fuel to alcohol, corn syrup to hydrochloric acid, and salt to silver acetate. This information has been substantially updated, curated and organized by the engineers at M-Base Engineering + Software, a leading supplier of material databases, material information systems, product information systems, and material related simulation software.
This book is as must-have reference for engineers and scientists designing and working with thermosets in environments where they come into contact with corrosive or reactive substances, from automotive and aerospace to coatings, adhesives, electrical insulation and fittings, and other applications.
- Comprehensive, comparable, and trustworthy chemical resistance data for thousands of exposure media on the properties of thermosets
- Includes coverage of ionomers, polyethyelene, polypropylene, polystyrene, PVC, and other polyolefins and polyesters
- A must have reference for engineers selecting materials for a range of application areas using thermosets, including aerospace, automotive, chemical process industries, coatings and adhesives
Engineers and Scientists involved in designing and working with plastics across a range of sectors where plastics are in contact with chemical reagents and other substances that may react with plastic materials, such as food, pharmaceuticals and medical devices
