    Understanding Thermoplastic Elastomers

    Published: July 20, 2017
    Authors: G. Holden

    The use of thermoplastic elastomers has significantly increased since they were first produced about 35 years ago. Their worldwide annual consumption was estimated to be about 1,000,000 metric tons/year in 1995 and this number is expected to rise to approximately 1,400,000 metric tons/year in 2000.

    Cryogenics

    Published: July 20, 2017
    Authors: W. Bryson

    This book explains how and why wear resistance in metals and other materials is improved by exposure to subzero or deep-cold temperatures. While cryogenics is not a new process, its benefits have not been fully exploited by industry. One reason for this neglect is that until now, there has not been a single source of information that explains how it works and why it works.
