Read or download book entitled Chemical Resistance of Specialty Thermoplastics written by William Woishnis which was release on 31 December 2012, this book published by William Andrew. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle Format. Book excerpt: While the two-volume work ‘Chemical Resistance of Thermoplastics’ covers chemical resistance of high-volume commercial (commodity) thermoplastics, this volume focuses on high performance 'engineering' or 'specialty' thermoplastics. These thermoplastics are usually consumed in smaller volumes, but have desirable characteristics for demanding and high-value applications. This book provides extensive data on chemical resistance tests, and material chemical resistance properties for important specialty thermoplastics including polyarylenes, polymimides and fluoropolymers, polymer alloys and specialty polyethylenes. The chemical resistance data provided enables the reader to make a better material selection decision, avoiding the major economic and business impacts of material failure, and in some cases eliminating the need for screening tests. The data gives detailed information on the parameters of exposure of plastics and their different grades to chemicals and environmental conditions, i.e. chemical compound or solvent, concentration, temperature, the length of time a plastic can withstand such attacks (with, for example, weight change as a key parameter) etc. – answering key questions often arising in the process of product development. This volume comes in an easy-to-use print format – including a list of exposure media enabling cross-referencing to the main material data tables – as well as an online database with an extended data set, and advanced search and navigation features. The single most comprehensive data source covering the chemical resistance properties of thermoplastics A must-have reference for those designing and working in sectors where thermoplastics come into contact with corrosive or reactive substances This new edition includes new chapters that provide the underpinning knowledge needed to fully understand and apply the information in the data sections In the print edition of this book, the data covered in the two volumes are also provided on a CD-ROM (compatible with Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 operating systems) offering extended navigation and search features
