Description - Additives for Plastics Handbook by Murphy
Both technically and economically, additives form a large and increasingly significant part of the polymer industry, both plastics and elastomers. There have been wide-ranging developments in this industry, covering chemistry and formulation of new and more efficient additive systems. Developments also include the safer use of additives, both by processors in the factory and as they affect the general public. This edition provides a view of all types of additives, concentrating mainly on their technical aspects (chemistry/formulation, structure, function, main applications) with notes on the commercial background of each. The field has been expanded to include any substance that is added to a polymer to improve its use, so including reinforcing materials (such as glass fibre), carbon black and titanium dioxide.
