German-English Dictionary of Plastics Technology

£24.99

Product description

The book has red boards and gilt titles; some bumping to spine ends, otherwise in fine condition. The jacket has light general handling wear and indentation marks, and slight creasing to upper and lower edges; two small closed tears, both approx. 5mm, to top edge. This dictionary has been compiled for professional translators and others who have to render German plastics texts into English, as well as for those who have to read such texts in the course of their work. It contains over 19000 words and expressions covering every aspect of plastics technology, ranging from the physics and chemistry of high polymers, properties, testing, mixing and compounding, through melt rheology and filtration, to additives and the many different processes whereby polymers are converted into finished and semi-finished products. Also included are terms relating to microprocessor controls, end uses, business and finance. Translators will welcome this book particularly, while engineers, scientists, consultants, journalists, teachers and students alike will find it an invaluable guide and a mine of information.
