Plastics: Surface and Finish demonstrates how plastics engineers and technologists have developed methods of converting commonplace plastics materials into articles and structures that display elegance and polish.

This book emphasizes the most appropriate way of exploiting the esthetic possibilities of plastics is through the fullest understanding of their inherent properties and relevant processing technology. The topics discussed include the embossing of thermoplastics, surface treatments for plastics films and containers, and gravure printing on plastics films. The vacuum metallizing of plastics, adhesives for plastics fabrication, and decorative laminates are also covered in this text.

This publication is intended for specialists in the graphic arts, technologists, and engineers who are concerned especially with printing and packaging with plastics, but is also useful for students and marketing experts.
