Low-Temperature Behaviour of Elastomers (New Concepts in Polymer Science)by M. F. Bukhina
Synopses & Reviews
Results of the studies of two leading Russian researchers in the field as well as of other Russian and foreign specialists are presented in this book. The nature and development of two physical processes - glass transition and crystallization determinig low-temperature behaviour of elastomers are under consideration in connection with the structure and composition of elastomeric materials. The effects of deformation, pressure and temperature on these processes are viewed. The contribution of different factors in frost-resistance of elastomeric materials and articles is discussed as well. Specific features of low-temperature behaviour of all existent rubbers are systemized. Furthermore, the possibilities of increasing the frost-resistance of different types of elastomeric materials and articles by means of optimization of composition and design are considered.
Book News Annotation:
The use of elastomers in aerospace vehicles and aircraft have been the greatest spur to understanding how rubber and similar materials behave at low temperatures, but possible temperature extremes encountered as the global climate continues to change also pose a potential problem. Russia turns out to be a favorable location for such research, and Bukhina (Institute of Elastomeric Materials and Articles, Moscow) and Kurlyand (Institute of Synthetic Rubbers, St. Petersburg) review findings of scientists there that have not been widely disseminated in the West. The Russian edition was published in 1989. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Physical processes such as glass transition and crystallization determinig low-temperature behaviour of elastomers and the effects of different factors on them are under consideration. Data for all existent rubbers are systemized and possibilities to increase the frost-resistance of materials and articles are considered.
