Elastomers Technology Handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Handbook of Elastomers
Second Edition
Edited by Anil K. Bhowmick and Howard L. Stephens

Responding to the overwhelming success of the first edition, the Handbook of Elastomers, Second Edition continues to provide the latest authoritative research on the developments, technology, and applications of rubbery materials.

80% revised and rewritten material covers major advances since publication of the previous edition!

Includes 10 new chapters written by nearly 50 recognized authorities from around the globe!

A complete, single-source volume blueprinting the industry’s use of rubber materials, the Handbook of Elastomers, Second Edition

  • systematically presents more structures, manufacturing techniques, and processing details for natural and synthetic rubbers, rubber-blends, rubber composites, and thermoplastic elastomers
  • investigates increased preparations and uses for plastic-related rubbers and elastomers
  • serves as a guide for selecting the most appropriate and the most recent rubbers for specific applications
  • offers more solutions to many practical problems encountered with rubbery materials
  • explores physical and mechanical properties of novel and old elastomeric materials
  • and much more!
Containing over 2200 literature references, drawings, photographs, tables, and equations - over 700 new to this edition, the Handbook of Elastomers, Second Edition is an essential guidebook for rubber, plastics, polymer, and chemical engineers, polymer scientists; materials scientists and engineers; R&D managers, supervisors, and technologists in the rubber and plastics industries; as well as continuing-education students in these disciplines.
