Book of the day - Resistance and Stability of Polymers

Friday, May 22, 2015
Akron, OH - A new book is offered in the Rubber World book store - 'Resistance and Stability of Polymers.' The stability and resistance of polymeric materials determine whether they can be utilized in a given application. Authoritative and reliable material information is needed during the material selection process, and this information must consider the influences of material manufacturing, compounding and stabilization, processing, part design, use and subsequent disposal/recycling. This book is based on a review of more than 1,200 literature sources and represents a comprehensive overview of the current know-how regarding the stability and resistance of thermoplastics, thermosets and elastomers, as well as the most commonly used reinforcements and additives. Extensive tables document material resistance to given media, facilitating appropriate material selection or stabilization for a given application. Volume 1 covers principles of aging, testing methods, stabilization, processing, applications, mechanical behavior of fiber reinforced plastics. Volume 2 covers plastics, rubbers and their acronyms. Other abbreviations, tables of chemical resistance, a bibliography and an index are included. Author: Gottfried Ehrenstrein & Sonja Pongratz ISBN: 978-1-56990-456-5 2 volumes, 1,436 pages 2013, hardcover $499.95 USD + SH Visit http://www.rubberworld.com/RWbookstore.asp for more information - * Email
