Description

The Effect of Long Term Thermal Exposure on Plastics and Elastomers, Second Edition brings together a wide range of essential data on the effect of long-term thermal exposure on plastics and elastomers, enabling engineers to make optimal material choices and design decisions. This second edition has been thoroughly revised to include the latest data and materials. This highly valuable handbook will support engineers, product designers, R&D professionals, and scientists who are working on plastics products or parts for high temperature environments across a range of industries.

This readily available data will make it easy for practitioners to learn about plastic materials and their long- term thermal exposure without having to search the general literature or depend on suppliers. This book will also be of interest to researchers and advanced students in plastics engineering, polymer processing, coatings, and materials science and engineering.

Key Features

  • Provides essential data and practical guidance for engineers and scientists working with plastics in high temperature environments
  • Includes introductory chapters on the effect of heat aging and testing methods, providing the underpinning knowledge required to utilize the data
  • Covers a wide range of commercial polymer classes that are updated to include the latest developments in plastics materials

Readership
