Polyurethane Casting Primer

Polyurethane Casting Primer Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Omitting complicated chemistry concepts, Polyurethane Casting Primer presents practical details on the casting of polyurethane products to assist readers in their daily work. It covers fundamental methods, explores hands-on design and production topics, and keeps theory to a minimum.

The book fully explains casting and allied processes. Starting from a bucket and paddle mix open pour, postcuring machining, bonding, and painting, it discusses how to produce quality products continuously. The author describes the necessary precautions for maintaining the health and safety of workers. He covers the properties of polyurethane systems, the tests and results of polyurethanes commonly used in compression, and the correct grade and processing of polyurethanes for meeting customer requirements. He also reveals how to fix issues such as molding problems and premature end of life.

The versatility of polyurethane enables a wide range of applications, from simple, noncritical parts to vital engineering products. This book guides manufacturers in designing and producing polyurethane products. Batch calculations are available for download at www.crcpress.com

Book News Annotation:

Before he retired, Clemitson worked with chemicals for 45 years in Australia, mostly in the production and development of polymers, concentrating on rubbers and polyurethanes. Here he provides practical details on casting polyurethane products, leaving out the comprehensive chemistry in his Castable Polyurethane Elastomers (2008). He explains the casting and allied processes, the care needed to produce quality products continuously, and properties that are regularly specified for polyurethane systems. He intends the manual to be used on a daily basis by people who have little need for the underlying theory. Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

Presenting practical, hands-on information alongside background explanations, this reader-friendly notebook minimizes the why of complex chemistry and highlights the how of processing and finishing polyurethane articles. It explains the fundamental groupings of polyurethanes and how that factor can change finished properties, and provides graphs and specifications of properties in compression and their responses under a range of loads and shape factors. Including formulas, tables of data, and a comprehensive glossary, the book discusses casting problems, solutions, and current practices in processing.
