Applied Plastics Engineering Handbook: Processing, Materials, and Applications, Second Edition, covers both the polymer basics that are helpful to bring readers quickly up-to-speed if they are not familiar with a particular area of plastics processing and the recent developments that enable practitioners to discover which options best fit their requirements. New chapters added specifically cover polyamides, polyimides, and polyesters. Hot topics such as 3-D printing and smart plastics are also included, giving plastics engineers the information they need to take these embryonic technologies and deploy them in their own work. With the increasing demands for lightness and fuel economy in the automotive industry (not least due to CAFÉ standards), plastics will soon be used even further in vehicles. A new chapter has been added to cover the technology trends in this area, and the book has been substantially updated to reflect advancements in technology, regulations, and the commercialization of plastics in various areas. Recycling of plastics has been thoroughly revised to reflect ongoing developments in sustainability of plastics. Extrusion processing is constantly progressing, as have the elastomeric materials, fillers, and additives which are available. Throughout the book, the focus is on the engineering aspects of producing and using plastics. The properties of plastics are explained, along with techniques for testing, measuring, enhancing, and analyzing them. Practical introductions to both core topics and new developments make this work equally valuable for newly qualified plastics engineers seeking the practical rules-of-thumb they don't teach you in school and experienced practitioners evaluating new technologies or getting up-to-speed in a new field. Presents an authoritative source of practical advice for engineers, providing guidance from experts that will lead to cost savings and process improvements Ideal introduction for both new engineers and experienced practitioners entering a new field or evaluating a new technology Updated to include the latest technology, including 3D Printing, smart polymers, and thorough coverage of biopolymers and biodegradable plastics

Revised and updated, this highly acclaimed work, now in its second edition, remains the most comprehensive source of information available on synthetic organic pigments. The opening part of the book introduces chemical and physical characterization with associated terminology. The middle section describes the synthesis and applications of the various classes of pigment in detail. The final chapter discusses ecological and toxicological themes. Standardized methods have been used to obtain the data thus facilitating comparison between pigments. Chemists, engineers, colorists and technicians are sure to find this book invaluable. From reviews of previous editions: 'Presentation throughout is of the highest quality and the volume must now become the standard reference text in this important area of colouring matters.' Dyes and Pigments 'This is a very wide-ranging reference work ... it would be difficult to find a topic in this field not covered by this book.' Ecochem
