Handbook of Thermoset Plastics, Fourth Edition provides complete coverage of the chemical processes, manufacturing techniques and design properties of each polymer, along with its applications. This new edition has been expanded to include the latest developments in the field, with new chapters on radiation curing, biological adhesives, vitrimers, and 3D printing. This detailed handbook considers the practical implications of using thermoset plastics and the relationships between processing, properties and applications, as well as analyzing the strengths and weakness of different methods and applications.
The aim of the book is to help the reader to make the right decision and take the correct action on the basis of informed analysis – avoiding the pitfalls the authors’ experience has uncovered. In industry, the book supports engineers, scientists, manufacturers and R&D professionals working with plastics. The information included will also be of interest to researchers and advanced students in plastics engineering, polymer chemistry, adhesives and coatings.
- Offers a systematic approach, guiding the reader through chemistry, processing methods, properties and applications of thermosetting polymers
- Includes thorough updates that discuss current practice and the new developments on biopolymers, nanotechnology, 3D printing, radiation curing and biological adhesives
- Uses case studies to demonstrate how particular properties make different polymers suitable for different applications
- Covers end-use and safety considerations
Industry: Plastics engineers; materials engineers; chemical engineers; R&D professionals, scientists, and manufacturers working with plastics. Academia: Researchers and advanced students in plastics engineering, plastics processing, polymer chemistry, adhesives and coatings, and materials engineering
