By Manas Chanda
• provides varied features of polymers on the molecular level
• Examines the polymer fabrication methods for plastics, rubber, and fiber
• specializes in the 4 major houses of plastics—mechanical, electric, optical, and thermal
• Covers either universal business polymers and novel polymeric materials
• Highlights the professionals and cons of various plastics recycling technologies
Because the sphere of plastics is without doubt one of the quickest altering components at the present time, you should to provide proper, complete fabric on polymers. a longtime resource of data on smooth plastics, the Plastics know-how Handbook keeps to supply up to date assurance at the houses, processing tools, and functions of polymers. preserving the easy-to-follow constitution of the former variants, this fourth variation comprises new issues of curiosity that mirror contemporary advancements and bring about higher insights into the molecular habit of polymers.
New to the Fourth Edition
