  • Biopolymersby R. M. Johnson; L.Y. Mwaikambo; N. Yucker

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2003; US$ 153.00

    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...

  • Regulation of Food Packaging in Europe and the USby D.J. Knight; L.A. Creighton

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2004; US$ 153.00

    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...

  • Adhesion to Fluoropolymersby D.M. Brewis; R.H. Dahm

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2005; US$ 153.00

    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...

  • Emulsion Polymerisation and Latex Applicationsby C. D. Anderson; E.S. Daniels

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2003; US$ 153.00

    Latexes are currently under going extensive research and development as key replacement materials for many solvent-based systems. They are being used in a broad range of fields from adhesives, inks, paints, coatings, drug delivery systems, medical assay kits, gloves, paper coatings, floor polish, films, carpet backing and foam mattresses to cosmetics.... more...

  • Styrenic Copolymersby A. Chrisochoou; D. Dufour

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2003; US$ 144.00

    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...

  • In-Mould Decoration of Plasticsby J.C. Love; V. Goodship

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2002; US$ 144.00

    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...

  • Plastic Flame Retardantsby I. Innes; A. Innes

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2003; US$ 153.00

    This review sets out to describe the types of flame retardants available for compounding into plastics materials, mechanisms of action and uses. This review provides a clear overview of the state-of-the-art of flame retardancy for plastics.It highlights the new developments and the potential problems with legislation, together with the benefi ts to... more...

  • Multi-Material Injection Mouldingby Vannessa Goodship; J.C. Love

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2002; US$ 144.00

    Injection moulding is the most important of all the commercial methods of plastics processing. Many variations have been developed and one of the rapidly expanding fields is multi-material injection moulding. This is particularly important where processors are looking to gain technological advantages over rivals by adding value to products. Whilst... more...

  • Practical Guide to Rotational Mouldingby R.J. Crawford; M.P. Kearns

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2003; US$ 90.00

    Rotational moulding is a very competitive alternative to blow moulding, thermoforming and injection moulding for the manufacture of hollow plastic parts. It offers designers the chance to produce stress-free articles, with uniform wall thickness and complex shapes. Rapra’s Practical Guide to Rotational Moulding describes the basic aspects of the... more...
