Description

Corrosion of Polymers and Elastomers provides a detailed examination of the corrosive effects of thermoplastic polymers, thermoset polymers, and elastomeric materials. The book is perfectly suited for specialists interested in the corrosion resistance and mechanisms of these materials.

Following a general introduction to the composition, properties, and applications of polymers, the book focuses on the effects of chemical corrosion caused by changes in temperature, moisture, and other corrodents. Organized by material type, the chapters cover each material's ability to withstand sun, weather, and ozone as well as its chemical resistance and typical applications. The book also includes compatibility tables for each of the materials and compares the corrosion resistance of selected elastomers.

Table of Contents

Introduction to Polymers. Thermoplastic Polymers. Thermoset Polymers. Comparative Corrosion Resistance of Thermoplastic and Thermoset Polymers. Elastomers. Comparative Corrosion Resistance of Selected Elastomers.
