Engineering Plastics Handbook (Hardcover) Price: $150.00
By James Margolis

Product Developers have found a wide array of application for thermoplastics in the automotive interior and exterior parts, business machines, medical, telecommunications equipment, microwaveable packaging, appliances, and specialty uses. However, finding a material that can meet consumer demands is no small task. While technological information is readily available regarding the general properties of common thermoplastic material, there is no single authoritative source for building and evaluating new product lines. Written by a top team of international experts, this book will focus only on new and emerging engineering resin property requirements, instead of properties of conventional engineering thermoplastics which are available from polymer producers and compounders.
