Advances in Polymer Processing: From Macro- To Nano- Scalesby Sabu Thomas
Synopses & Reviews
Processing techniques are critical to the performance of polymer products which are used in a wide range of industries. This book reviews the latest advances in polymer processing, techniques and materials. Part one reviews the fundamentals of polymer processing with chapters on rheology, materials and polymer extrusion. Part two then discusses advances in molding technology focusing on topics as compression, rotational and blow molding of polymers. Chapters in part three review alternative processing technologies such as calendaring and coating, foam processing and radiation processing of polymers. Part four discusses micro and nano-technologies, with coverage of themes including processing of macro, micro and nanocomposites and processing of carbon nanotubes. The final section of the book addresses post-processing technologies with chapters on online monitoring and computer modeling as well as joining, machining, finishing and decorating of polymers.
