This new reference work provides the most essential information needed by engineers for about 230 of the most important polymers used in plastics, the pharmaceutical industry, medical devices, electronics and electrical applications, automotive, aerospace, coatings, and construction, based on information from scientific literature, patents, and manufacturers.
The data provided includes synthesis, crystalline structure, important commercial polymers, physical properties, mechanical and rheological properties, chemical resistance, flammability, weather stability, biodegradation, toxicity, environmental impact, processing, blends, and analysis. The data were verified based on cross-examination of multiple original sources with special attention to the data generated in the last decade to provide information on currently available materials. The resulting handbook is the most up-to-date reference available.
