Toxic Properties of Polymers and Additives
This directory is a comprehensive guide to the toxicity of over 1000 polymers, monomers and additives used by the rubber and plastics industries. Since the toxic properties of materials are determined by the toxic properties of the substance released by them, a significant proportion of the book deals with monomers, plasticisers, stabilisers, and other additives. In this regard, the book will be of use when assessing the toxic properties not only of existing materials but also of future materials containing components that have already undergone toxicological analysis. Each entry gives a brief description of the material and its uses followed by summaries of studies on its toxicity. Extensive references are included for those requiring further details on the tests and results. The handbook is intended as a reference work and will provide a valuable reference work for all those involved with health and safety in the rubber and plastics industries.
"This publication is a translation of a Russian text. As a consequence, the polymers and additives are not strictly in English alphabetical order."
