Plastics Materials and Processes: A Concise Encyclopedia is a wide-ranging, accessible reference on plastics and processes!

Plastics Materials and Processes: A Concise Encyclopedia defines materials, processes, properties, test methods, and other useful information in a straightforward and efficient manner.

The contents of this encyclopedia was selected with an eye toward giving readers an efficient, intelligent overall insight into plastics without requiring them to wade through additional texts or handbooks in specific areas. Organized alphabetically, the Encyclopedia includes information on:

  • Application guidelines
  • Process method trade-offs
  • Design, finishing, and performance criteria
  • Chemical, structural, and other basic polymer considerations

It begins with a brief introduction to polymers and plastics that brings the disparate information of the Encyclopedia together. Several appendices of valuable property data are also included, comparing plastics and other commonly used materials with one another and offering guidance on processing methods and final applications.

Intended for general managers, executives, purchasing and manufacturing personnel, supervisors, engineers, and students, this comprehensive guide will be useful to anyone involved in product design, development, application, manufacturing, marketing, or other periphery functions in the plastics industry.
