Biaxial Stretching of Filmby M. T. Demeuse
Synopses & Reviews
Biaxial stretching of film is used for a range of applications. Many products ranging from food packaging, to packages for fresh cut produce are produced by this process. The first set of chapters review the fundamental principles of biaxial stretching. Emphasis is placed on the techniques of the technology, as well the different types of polymers used. The second collection of chapters examine the range of applications for the process, including product labels, snack packaging to synthetic paper. The book includes a discussion of future applications for biaxial stretching of film.
Book News Annotation:
Films that stretch in two directions are the workhorses of food packaging, and representatives from that industry join chemists, polymer scientists, and other contributors to discuss the principles and applications of the biaxial stretching. Among the topics are equipment design and requirements for making them, polyolefins and other polymers used in them, the strain energy function and stress-strain model for uniaxial and biaxial orientation of poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET), academic investigations, fresh-cut produce packaging, snack packaging, product labeling, and future trends for biaxially oriented films and orienting lines.
