The authoritative introduction to all aspects of plastics engineering — offering both academic and industry perspectives in one complete volume. Introduction to Plastics Engineering provides a self-contained introduction to plastics engineering. Book Details Book Quality: Publisher Quality ISBN Related ISBNs. This book presents in a single volume the basic essentials of the properties and processing behaviour of plastics and composites. The aim is to give engineers and technologists a sound understanding of basic principles without the introduction of unduly complex levels of mathematics or chemistry and thereby set plastics in their proper context as engineering materials.

If the plastic is distorted, heat with a heat gun and reshape the distorted area. When heating plastic, it is important that the plastic be heated all the way through. Hold the heat gun on the area until the opposite side of the plastic is uncomfortable to the touch. Once heated, force the plastic back into position with Bumper Rollers or. Many of the best metal finishing books are out of print and hard to find. Some are expensive but poorly described by the book sellers. will provide cover photos and book reviews of these works, and multiple source them so if one dealer is out, you'll have alternatives.

  This second edition of An Introduction to Plastics is the answer to manifold requests for an updated version by the readership. Since publication of the first edition in , the field of plastics has seen tremendous development. Their manufacture and properties are discussed and correlated to the molecular and supermolecular properties of polymers. The contents have been thoroughly revised Author: Hans-Georg Elias. Plastic Free: How I Kicked the Plastic Habit and How You Can Too (Skyhorse Publishing Company) is a practical guide to ridding your life—and the planet—of plastic. Publisher’s Description: Like many people, Beth Terry didn’t think an individual could have much impact on the environment.

In summary, "An Introduction to Plastics" is an excellent and fairly comprehensive, but nevertheless compact, textbook.

It can be recommended for engineers and materials scientists in academia, and especially in industry, who have to deal with the material properties and processing aspects of polymers."Cited by: "As its subtitle promises, [this book] does offer an introduction to the subject, along with a brief overview of the chemistry of plastics.

Rounding out the book are a helpful glossary, a reading list for those interested in exploring the topic in greater depth and an appendix of recipes for making your own bioplastics from common ingredients Cited by: Introduction to plastics Chapter contents Introduction 2 Dismantling consumer products 2 Mechanical and optical properties of everyday products 9 Identifying plastics 13 Product features related to processing 14 Summary 20 NIGEL J.

MILLS: Plastics, Third Edition Ch01 Final Proof page 1 pm. Introduction to Plastic The word, plastic, was derived from the word ‘Plastikos’ meaning ‘to mould’ in Greek.

Fossil fuels have compounds containing hydrogen and carbon (hydrocarbon) which act as building blocks for long polymer molecules. An Introduction to Plastics Plastics are used on a daily basis throughout the world.

The word Introducing plastics. book is a common term that is used for many materials of a synthetic or semi-synthetic nature.

"Green Plastics introduces the new generation of biodegradable plastics—bioplastics—whose components are derived mostly from renewable raw materials. For anyone interested in an introduction to 'green plastics,' this is the entrance key."—Ann-Christine Albertsson, Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, and editor, Biomacromolecules.

Developed with designers, engineers, and purchasing specialists in mind, our completely revised and expanded eBook, An Introduction to Plastic Injection Molding provides a thorough understanding of plastic injection molding processes, presses, and costs.

Our goal is to help our customers and followers become more knowledgeable about what goes into making a plastic part. 1 Material Properties of Plastics Formation and Structure The basic structure of plastics (or polymers) is given by macromolecule chains, formulated from monomer units by chemical reactions.

Typical reactions for chain assembling are polyaddition (continuous or step wise) and condensation polymer-ization (polycondensation) [1] (Figure ). Plastics are (mostly) synthetic (human-made) materials, made from polymers, which are long molecules built around chains of carbon atoms, typically with hydrogen, oxygen, sulfur, and nitrogen filling in the spaces.

About this book This introductory text is an important resource for new engineers, chemists, students, and chemical industry personnel to understand the technical aspects of polypropylene which is the 2nd largest synthetics polymer in manufactured output.

The Plastics Design Library series (PDL) is a collection of data books, reference works and practical guides covering plastics engineering, applications, processing, manufacturing, material selection, product design, recycling and waste, and innovative series is aimed at a wide range of engineers, R&D, and other professionals working primarily in the plastics industry, and.

"This book presents a precise, yet non-mathematical introduction to plastics, their raw materials, syntheses, properties and applications." (B. Sillion, Revue de l'Institut Francais du Pétrole) "The volume is excellently written, with a simple, straightforward and comprehensive index.

I've written a book about plastic and the ocean to help educate kids in Indonesia. It needs illustration, printing & on: London, UK. Rubinstein's textbook is another great introduction to polymer physics (especially scaling principles, percolation, and fractal behavior), and Hiemenez and Lodge's book is a good resource for.

Introduction to Plastics Engineering provides a single reference covering the basics of polymer and plastics materials, and their properties, design, processing and applications in a practical way. The book discusses materials engineering through properties formulation, combining part design and processing to produce final products.

History and Future of Plastics What Are Plastics and Where Do They Come From. Plastic is a word that originally meant “pliable and easily shaped.” It only recently became a name for a category of materials called polymers.

The word polymer means “of many parts,” and polymers are made of long chains of molecules. Polymers abound in nature.
