This reference guide brings together a wide range of critical
data on the effect of temperature on plastics and elastomers,
enabling engineers to make optimal material choices and design
decisions. The effects of humidity level and strain rate on
mechanical and electrical properties are also covered. The data are
supported by explanations of how to make use of the data in real
world engineering contexts. High (and low) temperatures can have a
significant impact on plastics processing and applications,
particularly in industries such as automotive, aerospace, oil and
gas, packaging, and medical devices, where metals are increasingly
being replaced by plastics. Additional plastics have also been
included for polyesters, polyamides and others where available,
including polyolefins, elastomers and fluoropolymers. Entirely new
sections on biodegradable polymers and thermosets have been added
to the book. The level of data included along with the large number
of graphs and tables for easy comparison saves readers the need to
contact suppliers, and the selection guide has been fully updated,
giving assistance on the questions which engineers should be asking
when specifying materials for any given application.
Trustworthy, current thermal data and best practice guidance for
engineers and materials scientists in the plastics industryMore
than 1,000 graphs and tables allow for easy comparison between
