Metallocene technology in commercial application by George Benedikt( )

8 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 506 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Second in the Metallocene series from PDL, this book focuses on the commercial use and process improvements of resins produced with metallocene, single site, and other modern catalytic methods. Research to broaden the scope of applications and shorten production cycles is presented. New and improved polymer blends resulting from the use of new catalysts and improved polymer compatibility are explored as well as new applications becoming possible due to improved and balanced properties. Current trends and the latest research from the international scientific and industrial community are presented in this volume. Chapters cover use in extrusion, film manufacture, injection molding, foam production, fiber spinning, composites and new applications. Precise testing methods, material characterization, polymer morphology and crystallization are the focus of another section of the book
Imaging and image analysis applications for plastics by Behnam Pourdeyhimi( )

11 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The collection of techniques gathered in this book help illustrate material/process/property relationships for materials and processes in the plastics industry. With the recent increases in computing power and scope, as well as advances in software engineering, imaging has already become a universal tool. Image processing and image analysis have become common expressions are widely recognized within the scientific community. The imaging techniques employed range from visible optical methods to scanning and transmission electron microscopy, x-ray, thermal wave infrared, and atomic force microscopy. Image analysis is used to monitor/ characterize a variety of processes. Processes included within this book are: extrusion, injection molding, foam production, film manufacture, compression molding, blow molding, vulcanization, melt spinning, reactive blending, welding, conveying, composite manufacture, compounding, and thermosetting
Coloring technology for plastics by Ronald M Harris( )

10 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 453 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Focuses on developments in plastics coloring. The first section covers pigments and dyes with information on their chemistry, use, food contact approval, and durability. The second section focuses on effective pigment incorporation and discusses factors that influence it, as well as dispersing aids, dispersion methods, and ways to improve process ability and increase efficiency. In the section on the testing of colored products, methods to decrease variability, establish specifications, and select and design cost effective formulations are reviewed. New testing techniques such as FTIR and NIR are presented. In the next section the effect of colorants on properties of materials is analyzed with chapters covering their nucleating effect and polymer crystallization in their presence. Discussions of extrusion, injection molding, coating, and welding in relation to colorants are included throughout as are chapters on health and safety and special effects.--[Source inconnue]
Conductive polymers and plastics in industrial applications by Larry Rupprecht( )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Materials and methods for electromagnetic interference (EMI), electrostatic discharge (ESD) and other electronics applications are covered in this book. Sections on material design, methods of manufacture and successful use of plastics containing conductive fillers, intrinsically conductive polymers and polymers utilizing new blending technology are included, and these technologies are compared to other methods such as metal plating. Chapters cover the effect of processing parameters and formulation on material performance
Medical plastics : degradation resistance & failure analysis by Robert C Portnoy( )

6 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The introductory chapter gives an overview of the medical applications of plastics and the specific performance requirements they need to meet. The following chapters discuss various degrading environments and their effects, including environmental stress cracking, effect of body liquids, effect of harsh environments, and various methods of sterilization. The book also discusses the failure of medical devices due to contamination, low temperature, the effects of UV light, migration of formulation components, mechanical stresses, and problems with design and fabrication. Case histories of failures of some common products used in medicine are also provided
Specialized molding techniques by Hans-Peter Heim( )

7 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 396 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A survey of molding technologies in context. The relations among these technologies are analyzed in terms of products, materials, processing, and geometry.--Résumé de l'éditeur
Weathering of plastics : testing to mirror real life performance by George Wypych( )

6 editions published between 1999 and 2001 in English and held by 393 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents findings and opinions of professionals in material degradation testing. The aim is to improve testing methods and procedures. Materials are presented to show that photochemical degradation rate depends on a combination of environmental factors such as UV radiation, temperature, humidity, rain, stress, and concentration of reactive pollutants. The potential effect of each parameter of degradation on data gathered is discussed based on known results from a long experience in testing. This book contains data obtained in laboratories of the largest manufacturers of UV stabilizers and chemical companies which manufacture durable materials. It gives details of testing procedures and choice of parameters of exposure which are crucial for obtaining laboratory results correlating with environmental performance of materials. In addition to exposure conditions, the book contains many suggestions on sample preparation and post-exposure testing. The effective use of these methods shortens testing time of materials and determines acceleration rate of testing
Plastics failure : analysis and prevention by John Moalli( )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book contains analysis of reasons that cause products to fail. General methods of product failure evaluation give powerful tools in product improvement. Such methods, discussed in the book, include practical risk analysis, failure mode and effect analysis, preliminary hazard analysis, progressive failure analysis, fault tree analysis, mean time between failures, Wohler curves, finite element analysis, cohesive zone model, crack propagation kinetics, time-temperature collectives, quantitative characterization of fatigue damage, and fracture maps. Methods of failure analysis, broadly discussed, are critical for material improvement. Fractography of plastics is relatively a new field, which has many commonalities with fractography of metals. Here various aspects of fractography of plastics and metals are compared and contrasted. Fractography application in studies of static and cycling loading of ABS is also discussed. Other methods include SEM, SAXS, FTIR, DSC, DMA, GC/MS, optical microscopy, fatigue behavior, multiaxial stress, residual stress analysis, punch resistance, creep-rupture, impact, oxidative induction time, craze testing, defect analysis, fracture toughness, and activation energy of degradation
