Chemical Resistance of Specialty Thermoplastics Excerpt :

While the two-volume work ‘Chemical Resistance of Thermoplastics’ covers chemical resistance of high-volume commercial (commodity) thermoplastics, this volume focuses on high performance 'engineering' or 'specialty' thermoplastics. These thermoplastics are usually consumed in smaller volumes, but have desirable characteristics for demanding and high-value applications. This book provides extensive data on chemical resistance tests, and material chemical resistance properties for important specialty thermoplastics including polyarylenes, polymimides and fluoropolymers, polymer alloys and specialty polyethylenes. The chemical resistance data provided enables the reader to make a better material selection decision, avoiding the major economic and business impacts of material failure, and in some cases eliminating the need for screening tests. The data gives detailed information on the parameters of exposure of plastics and their different grades to chemicals and environmental conditions, i.e. chemical compound or solvent, concentration, temperature, the length of time a plastic can withstand such attacks (with, for example, weight change as a key parameter) etc. – answering key questions often arising in the process of product development. This volume comes in an easy-to-use print format – including a list of exposure media enabling cross-referencing to the main material data tables – as well as an online database with an extended data set, and advanced search and navigation features. The single most comprehensive data source covering the chemical resistance properties of thermoplastics A must-have reference for those designing and working in sectors where thermoplastics come into contact with corrosive or reactive substances This new edition includes new chapters that provide the underpinning knowledge needed to fully understand and apply the information in the data sections In the print edition of this book, the data covered in the two volumes are also prov

Handbook of Thermoset Plastics 2nd Ed Excerpt :

Once occupying a lesser, yet significant, role in the plastics' industry, thermoset plastics technology has increasingly become important to designers and users who work in specialty applications. Everything from toys to medical devices, and from automotive to sports and recreation products, are being manufactured using thermoset plastics. An increased understanding of thermoset plastics technology and processes has broadened their use exponentially over the last few years. In fact, the importance and contributions of unsaturated polyesters, urethanes, and epoxy thermosets have driven unprecedented sales and production figures that approach the definition of commodity materials. As a survey of the technology, the handbook provides the reader with the practical implications of crosslinking, as well as establishing relationships between time, temperature, and mass, often ignored in the general overviews allotted to thermoset plastics in other handbooks. The Handbook of Thermoset Plastics offers the most complete collection of general and technical details available for this important subject.

Handbook of Thermoplastic Elastomers Excerpt :

Handbook of Thermoplastic Elastomers, Second Edition presents a comprehensive working knowledge of thermoplastic elastomers (TPEs), providing an essential introduction for those learning the basics, but also detailed engineering data and best practice guidance for those already involved in polymerization, processing, and part manufacture. TPEs use short, cost-effective production cycles, with reduced energy consumption compared to other polymers, and are used in a range of industries including automotive, medical, construction and many more. This handbook provides all the practical information engineers need to successfully utilize this material group in their products, as well as the required knowledge to thoroughly ground themselves in the fundamental chemistry of TPEs. The data tables included in this book assist engineers and scientists in both selecting and processing the materials for a given product or application. In the second edition of this handbook, all chapters have been reviewed and updated. New polymers and applications have been added — particularly in the growing automotive and medical fields — and changes in chemistry and processing technology are covered. Provides essential knowledge of the chemistry, processing, properties, and applications for both new and established technical professionals in any industry utilizing TPEs Datasheets provide "at-a-glance" processing and technical information for a wide range of commercial TPEs and compounds, saving readers the need to contact suppliers Includes data on additional materials and applications, particularly in automotive and medical industries

Specialty Thermoplastics Excerpt :

The present volume comprises physical data (mechanical, thermal, electrical, optical properties) of three types of specialty thermoplastic materials and provides detailed chemical and process-related information of their behavior in their applications. These materials include fluoroplastics, high-performance engineering thermoplastics, and thermoplastic elastomers. Fluoroplastics are unique polymeric materials, which exhibit exceptional chemical inertness, resistance to elevated temperatures, resistance to ultraviolet radiation, excellent weather resistance, excellent dielectric properties, flame resistance, hydrophobicity, and most of them low coefficients of friction. High Performance Engineering Thermoplastics are engineering thermoplastics with uniquely high mechanical properties and resisting very high temperatures, typically above 150 °C for extended periods of time. Thermoplastic Elastomers are a large group of thermoplastic polymeric materials with elastic properties that can be processed and recycled as common plastics.
