A study of the physical, mechanical and corrosion resistant properties of all the most common commercially available plastics and elastomers. It offers examples of typical applications and describes methods of joining. The physical, mechanical and corrosion resistant properties of 32 thermoplastics, 20 thermosets, and 27 elastomers are provided. There are more than 300 tables and chemical structures.
". . .promotes the basic understanding of the nature of polymers and will assist those involved in their application to solve mechanical and corrosion-resistance problems. . .. . . .a vital resource. . .. . . .a well-organized and well-written book."
