An Introduction to Plastics. Plastics are used on a daily basis throughout the world. The word plastic is a common term that is used for many materials of a synthetic or semi-synthetic nature. The term was derived from the Greek plastikos, which means “fit for molding.”. Chapter I - Introduction to plastics. Pages Publisher Summary. This chapter encourages the reader to familiarize themselves with plastics. It aims to open the reader's eyes to design features in familiar products and to relate these features to polymer processes. Starting from microstructure and physical properties, the book covers.

Brydson's Plastics Materials, Eighth Edition, provides a comprehensive overview of the commercially available plastics materials that bridge the gap between theory and practice. The book enables scientists to understand the commercial implications of their work and provides engineers with essential theory. Introduction to Plastics Engineering provides a single reference covering the basics of polymer and plastics materials, and their properties, design, processing and applications in a practical way. The book discusses materials engineering through properties formulation, combining part design and processing to produce final products. Introduction To Plastics Plastic is defined as a material that contains as an essential ingredient an organic substance of large molecular weight. It is also defined as polymers of long carbon chains. This book gives a thorough introduction to bio-based material resources, availability, sustainability, biobased polymer formation, extraction and refining technologies, and the need for integrated research and multi-disciplinary working teams.

This second edition of An Introduction to Plastics is the answer to manifold requests for an updated version by the readership. Since publication of the first edition in , the field of plastics has seen tremendous development. Their manufacture and properties are discussed and correlated to the molecular and supermolecular properties of polymers. The contents have been thoroughly revised Author: Hans-Georg Elias. 1 Material Properties of Plastics Formation and Structure The basic structure of plastics (or polymers) is given by macromolecule chains, formulated from monomer units by chemical reactions. Typical reactions for chain assembling are polyaddition (continuous or step wise) and condensation polymer-ization (polycondensation)  (Figure ). Introduction to Plastics Engineering provides a self-contained introduction to plastics engineering. A unique synergistic approach explores all aspects of material use -- concepts, mechanics, materials, part design, part The authoritative introduction to all aspects of plastics engineering -- offering both academic and industry perspectives in 5/5(1).
