This overview of plastics testing provides an understanding of how polymer structure and morphology affect properties that are important for plastics processing and how to test for these properties. The reader will get an overview of basic material testing, the specific properties tested, and why they are important. The book also provides insight into which tests are useful for predicting the behavior of plastics products after they have been produced and in end-use.
