Advances in Polymer Processing Reviews Latest Advances in Polymer Processing and Materials

Although often regarded as just another word for plastic, the most common type of polymer, applications of polymers are far reaching. Central to the continued development of polymers and optimum use are processing technologies that enable the utilization of polymers to a wide variety of industries.

Advances in polymer processing: From macro- to nano- scale from Woodhead Publishing reviews the latest advances in polymer processing, techniques and materials. An introduction to the fundamentals of polymer processing leads on to an investigation into recent advances in multicomponent polymeric materials. Specific chapters on injection, rotational and blow moulding of polymers summarise advances made in moulding technologies.

An examination of alternative processing technologies includes calendaring and coating, thermoforming and radiation processing of polymers considering dimensional variations. Further to a discussion of the processing of micro, macro and nano-composites is a review of post-processing technologies such as online monitoring and computer modelling. This comprehensive 700 page title provides a thorough assessment of both recent advances in polymer processing and future trends.

With is distinguished editors and team of international contributors, Advances in polymer processing: From macro- to nano- scales is an invaluable reference for engineers and academics concerned with polymer processing.
