Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This handbook contains answers to questions most often asked about 119 different plastic topics. From acetal to XT polymer, from blow molding to ultrasonic welding, and from simple fillers to exotic reinforcements, each section presents essential information in a convenient format. Developed by an editorial board to ensure that it meets the information needs of people in the plastics industry, the book has comprehensive tables and appendices. The book is divided into three major sections - materials, processes and technology - with every material and processing section broken down into 15 subsections. This ensures the user can find information quickly.
