"Combines fundamental theory, systematic experimentation, disciplined research, and logical procedures to simplify the thermoplastic selection process as well as reduce production cost and time. Second Edition contains new features such as rheology property data, recycling in resin selection, and more and more."
"This is a useful book and will supplement the designer's knowledge and skills when trying to define the most suitable thermoplastics for a specific application. "
