Description

Polyurethane sealants are used in many high-volume applications such as construction and automotive. This volume provides an in-depth, illustrated survey of both the technology and applications. The detailed information will be useful to all those involved in the research, development, processing, evaluation and use of sealants for high-volume applications.

Reviews

"This volume brings the latest information on these important sealants up-to-date. . . . Covers the technology and chemistry of urethane sealants in exhaustive and excellent detail.

"Overall, this book is an excellent exposition of the development of and importance of urethane sealants. It would be an important addition to the library of all sealant chemists and engineers."

--Joseph Prane, Industrial Consultant, in Journal of Coatings Technology

"All in all, I found this book quite useful in my own business in several ways. I highly recommend it for industrial and academic libraries, for engineering and chemistry users."

--Robert D. Athey Jr., Athey Technologies, in Polymer News
