Functional Fillers for Plastics
John Wiley & Sons, Jan 7, 2010 - Science - 531 pages
A comprehensive and up-to-date overview of the major mineral and organic fillers for plastics, their production, structure and properties, as well as their applications in terms of primary and secondary functions. Edited and co-authored by Professor Marino Xanthos with contributions by international experts from industry and academia, the book presents methods of mixing/incorporation technologies, surface treatments and modifications for enhanced functionality, an analysis of parameters affecting filler performance and a presentation of current and emerging applications. For engineers, scientists and technologists involved in the industrially important sector of polymer composites.
Reviews of the previous edition:
"... the various authors all do a good job of thoroughly and clearly presenting their subjects in an easy-to-read fashion."
CORROSION, December 2006
"... this is a book that I can recommend: it offers an excellent balance of polymer chemistry and materials engineering. Having already made use of the information contained within, I can attest to its utility and recommend it highly."
