Approaching the material from a chemistry and engineering perspective, High Performance Polymers presents the most reliable and current data available about state-of-the-art polymerization, fabrication, and application methods of high-performance industrial polymers.
Chapters are arranged according to chemical constitution of the individual classes, beginning with main chain carbon-carbon polymers and leading to ether-containing, sulfur-containing, and so on. Each chapter follows an easily readable template, provides a brief overview and history of the polymer, and continues on to such sub-topics as: monomers; polymerization and fabrication; properties; fabrication methods; special additives; applications; suppliers and commercial grades; safety; and environmental impact and recycling. For quick reference, this amply illustrated book presents monographs and lists of commercially available polymers throughout, and concludes with four indices: trademarks; acronyms; chemicals; and general.
With over three decades of experience on the subject, Johannes Fink employs a clear writing style and builds up from the fundamental level to guide you through both the simple and more complex material discussed in this book. The properties of, and recent areas of application for, high-performance polymers are explained in detail, supported by journal and patent literature from 2000 onward, which will be of particular interest to specialists and engineers in industry. High Performance Polymers brings a wealth of up-to-date, high-performance polymer data to your library, in a format that allows for either a fast fact-check or longer study.
