Polymers Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

Szycher's Handbook of Polyurethanes
by Michael Szycher

  • Presents a general overview of the chemistry of urethanes
  • Describes the various types of polyurethanes available to the market place
  • Includes information on polyurethane suppliers and the equipment for making polyurethane material
  • Contains numerous equations and tables

Handbook of Polyurethanes serves as the first source of information of useful polymers. This new book thoroughly covers the entire spectrum of polyurethanes - from current technology to buyer's information.

Discussions include:

  • block and heteroblock systems
  • rubber plasticity
  • structure-property relations
  • microphase separation
  • catalysis of isocyanate reactions
  • synthesis of polyurethanes for thermoplastics, thermosets, and curable compositions by either heat or U.V. energy
  • biomedical applications of urethane elastomers
  • castables, sealants, and caulking compounds
  • flexible and semi-flexible foams
  • health and safety

This handbook compiles data from many sources, exhaustively illustrating the complex principles involved in polyurethane chemistry and technology. Handbook of Polyurethanes represents invaluable information for corporations, universities, or independent inventors.
