Description

Building on the success of its predecessor with completely revised material and six new chapters, the Handbook of Polypropylene and Polypropylene Composites, Second Edition responds to increasing interest and changing global trends in the manufacture and application of polypropylene resin. The authors highlight viable options for the manufacture of polypropylene composites to better accommodate market requirements across various industries. The second edition introduces chapters on high-purity submicron talc fillers with lamellar microstructures, the utilization of Wollastonite fibers for polypropylene reinforcement, and updated material on nanocomposite production using exfoliated clay treated with maleated polypropylene-based materials, among many other topics.

Reviews

"The breadth of the topics covered, the depth of the discussion in each of these fields, and the sufficiently detailed and up-to-date information about the PP technology make this book very useful to both novices and seasoned practitioners alike. … The book is highly recommended and is a must for all plastic engineers who deal with PP."
