Biogas is slowly being utilised more commercially. With buses in Switzerland being run on this by-product from industrial and domestic waste, it seems like this fuel is proving itself as a sustainable way of powering our modern world. It is even being used on an individual level in remote rural locations in India, where gas is extracted from manure... more...

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...

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...

Composites are being used more and more in the automotive industry, because of their strength, weight, quality and cost advantages. In 1998-1999, to further knowledge of composites, the Rover Group in conjunction with the Warwick Manufacturing Group devised a Composite Awareness course. This book is an updated and expanded version of the course notes.... more...

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...
