Waiting for minimum critic reviews


Utilizes an encyclopedic approach to cover the developments in polyolefins and styrenics during the last decade

This book focuses on common types of polymers belonging to the class of polyolefins and styrenics. The text is arranged according to the chemical constitution of polymers and reviews the developments that have taken place in the last decade. A brief introduction to the polymer type is given and previous monographs and reviews dealing with the topic are listed for quick reference. The text continues with monomers, polymerization, fabrication techniques, properties, application, as well as safety issues.

Providing a rather encyclopedic approach to polyolefins and styrenics, The Handbook of Engineering and Specialty Thermoplastics:

Presents a listing of suppliers and commercial grades

Reviews current patent literature, essential for the engineer developing new products

Contains as extensive tradenames index with information that is fairly unique

Concludes with an index of acronyms

The Handbook of Engineering and Specialty Thermoplastics: Polyolefins and Styrenics provides a comprehensive reference for chemical engineers and offers advanced students with a textbook for use in courses on chemically biased plastics technology and polymer science.
