Apr 04,  · As a plastic distributor, I like to read books about the history of plastics. As a Colorado resident, and husband to a professional conservationist, I enjoy learning more about environmental issues.

I got a chance to do both when I when I recently read the new book, Plastic; A Plastics book Love Story by Susan Freinkel/5(85). The seventh edition of this classic reference work once more provides a comprehensive overview of commercially available plastics materials.

Bridging the gap between theory and practice, it enables scientists to understand the commercial implications of their work as well as providing technologists with a theoretical background.

This book is designed to introduce plastics to a wide range of students who need to either gain, improve, or refresh their knowledge of plastic materials and manufacturing. It fully discusses both materials and manufacturing processes in a carefully-constructed and logical presentation.

While providing a fundamental overview of a broad spectrum Cited by: This book presents in a single volume the basic essentials of the properties and processing behaviour of plastics and composites.

The aim is to give engineers and technologists a sound understanding of basic principles without the introduction of unduly complex levels of mathematics or chemistry and thereby set plastics in their proper context as engineering materials. The Plastics Design Library series (PDL) is a collection of data books, reference works and practical guides Plastics book plastics engineering, applications, processing, manufacturing, material selection, product design, recycling and waste, and innovative series is aimed at a wide range of engineers, R&D, and other professionals working primarily in the plastics industry, and.

Jan 28,  · The first of the book’s four sections represents a basic introduction to the key subject matter of plastics and the environment; the second explores several pertinent applications of plastics with environmental implications–packaging, paints and coatings, textiles, and agricultural film use.

1 Material Properties of Plastics Formation and Structure The basic structure of plastics (or polymers) is given by macromolecule chains, formulated from monomer units by chemical reactions.

Typical reactions for chain assembling are polyaddition (continuous or step wise) and condensation polymer-ization (polycondensation) [1] (Figure ). Concerns over what he considers a growing amount of plastics misinformation have led plastics veteran Chris DeArmitt to write a book: "The Plastics Paradox: Facts for a Brighter Future." The book.

Since the previous edition, several new materials have been 4/5(4). The Plastics Industry Association is the only organization that represents every segment of the plastics supply chain to make members more globally competitive. While most plastics are produced from petrochemicals, bioplastics are made substantially from renewable plant materials such: as cellulose and starch.

Due both to the finite limits of the petrochemical reserves and to the threat of global warming, the development of bioplastics is a growing field. However, bioplastic development begins from a very low base and, as yet, does not compare.

Oct 10,  · This accessible book is designed to help readers understand the life-cycle impacts of various plastics, clarifying the technical research and practical arguments to show when bio-based and recycled plastics might be useful options for reducing the overall energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, and waste associated with traditional plastics.

Plastic is an incredibly useful and versatile material that offers ease and convenience. Unfortunately it is difficult to recycle and takes a very long time to break down naturally.
