Film Properties
of Plastics
and Elastomers

A Guide to Non-Wovens in Packaging Applications
Second Edition
by Liesl K. Massey

Features:

  • New introductory chapter provides an overview of the applications of film packaging materials and the test methods for tensile, tear, folding, bursting, permeability and other important engineering properties.
  • Updated and extensively expanded characteristics information on all of the 47 films.
  • Updated trade names.
  • Substantially expanded coverage of multi-layer films.
  • Covers thermoplastics, thermosets, thermoplastic elastomers, rubbers, and composites including polyamide nanocomposites, and concludes with a discussion of biodegradable or organic films

This extensively revised and updated second edition of the only data handbook available on the engineering properties of commercial polymeric films details many physical, mechanical, optical, electrical, and permeation properties within the context of specific test parameters, providing a ready reference for comparing materials in the same family as well as materials in different families.

Data are presented on the characteristics of 47 major plastic and elastomer packaging materials. New to this edition, the resin chapters each contain textual summary information including category, general description, processing methods, applications, and other facts as appropriate, such as reliability, weatherability, and regulatory approval considerations for use in food and medical packaging. Extensive references are provided.

The resin chapter material supplier trade name product data are presented in graphical and tabular format, with results normalized to SI units, retaining the familiar format of the 1st edition and allowing easy comparison between materials and test conditions.
