Specialty Thermoplastics
Specialty thermoplastics command a US$3 billion market worldwide. Their use is proliferating in aerospace and transportation, medical applications including implants, electrical and electronics, textiles and general engineering, and the oil and gas industries. This book provides the key details of all specialty thermoplastics in one volume, uncluttered by information on other commodity and engineering plastics. It covers the spectrum of manufacturing methods, major properties, processing, and applications.

The extraordinary resistance of specialty thermoplastics to high temperature, oxidation, hydrolysis, other chemicals, and radiation, as well as outstanding mechanical properties at temperatures from -40 to 300 °C make them attractive materials for challenging applications. R&D scientists will appreciate the coverage here of different polymer structures for specialty plastics and why certain structures are technically and commercially preferred. Plastics engineers and product design engineers are empowered to select the right plastic in the right grade for the desired applications.

Guidance on processing of specialty plastics using injection and compression molding, extrusion, and coating is provided, together with a wealth of details regarding applications, including aspects that are not readily visible, such as touch and feel.

In addition to users in industry and academic research, this work is also applicable as a textbook for special courses on polymer science and engineering for graduate and undergraduate students.

Rezensionen

"Overall, this book provides valuable insights into the world of speciality thermoplastics and is well-written. It is a recommended read for scientists, technologists and marketing professionals as well as undergraduate / postgraduate students and researchers." Dr. Virendra K. Gupta, Polymers Communiqué, December 2023

"This book, Specialty Thermoplastics, is particularly timely given the ever-increasing demand for improved performance in so many new and existing applications throughout industry. These demands are often being driven by the need to save weight or withstand various environmental factors. [...] Technologists, whether with a polymer producer, compounder, OEM, or in academia concerned with these specialty thermoplastics, will find this book pulls together in one volume a wealth of data and information. Processors, for example, moulders, extruders, AM users and other convertors, currently handling these materials, or considering using them, will find thisbook very helpful." Bernard Lanham, British Plastics and Rubber, June 2023

"The book is an impressive work in the world of specialty thermoplastics, and an excellent knowledge source for beginners like undergraduate students, as well as for professionals seeking detailed knowledge and loopholes in literature while performing research. [...] It is one of its kind, covering all the crucial aspects of specialty thermoplastics – from the basics, to their high-performance applications. The book emphasises not only the processing of specialty polymers, but also the various synthesis techniques and chemistries used to make them – the traditional and unconventional." Prof. S.T. Mhaske, Chemical Weekly, April 2023

"Dr. Trivedi’s book, ‘Specialty Thermoplastics’ is like the GITA, which covers all [...] aspects and summarizes them well with lots of examples. It provides insight into the current trend of specialty thermoplastics as well as their potential growth in the future. Specialty Thermoplastics, written by Dr. Trivedi, is an honor and a source of pride for India’s plastics industry. I sincerely appreciate Hanser Publication, Germany for publishing the Specialty Thermoplastics book, which covers all the aspects of STP." Dr. Atulkumar Raja, IPI Journal, February 2023
