This report is an output from the Weathering of Elastomers and Sealants project, which forms part of the UK governments Department of Trade and Industrys Degradation of Materials in Aggressive Environments Programme. A long-term natural ageing programme was started in 1958 when 19 rubber compounds were exposed at 3 locations. The final... more...

The earth has finite resources in terms of fossil origin fuel and a finite capacity for disposal of waste. Biopolymers may offer a solution to both these issues in the long-term. The ideal biopolymer is both of renewable biological origin and biodegradable at the end of its life. In some cases material may be of a biological origin and not readily... more...

A wide variety of plastics are used in food-contact applications and it is important that such plastics do not affect the food with which they come into contact. Given the obvious importance of producing safe and wholesome food, with adequate shelf life, it is not surprising that the food industry is heavily regulated. There is considerable public... more...

In this review the principles of adhesion are considered first (Section 2). Techniques that have greatly increased our understanding of adhesion to fluoropolymers are described in Section 3. Cases where good adhesion is achieved without a pretreatment are examined in Section 4. However, as pretreatments are usually needed to get the required level... more...

Styrenic copolymers are engineering thermoplastics. The most important are styrene-acrylonitrile copolymer (SAN) and acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene terpolymer (ABS). Other monomers can also be used with styrene including methyl methacrylate and maleic anhydride. Blends of styrenic copolymers with other thermoplastics are also becoming established... more...

Many plastic components need to have a surface finish applied before use. This can act as a decorative layer, a protective layer, to smooth out surface defects, or to alter surface properties (for example, to enhance adhesion). If this surface effect is applied during the moulding process, it can reduce time, space, material and machinery requirements.... more...
