This highly useful desk top reference handbook provides current practical information on the applied technology, art, and science of corrosion resistant plastics in a format suited for day to day use by corrosion engineers, plastics processors, material and polymer scientists, and all those concerned with construction in hostile environments.
Early chapters give an extensive introduction to the theoretical basis for material selection, the fundamentals of plastics, the physical properties of polymers, and the relationship of molecular structure to chemical resistance. Complete coverage of the effect of solvents on polymers, tests for corriosive resistant coatings, and the testing of plastics for chemical resistance follows.
Chapters details such important topics as High Solids Compositions, Plastisols, Pastes, Powders and Caulking Compositions, Foams, Castings, and Plastic Mortars, Polymeric Linings and Thermoplastic Pipe and Structures, Reinforced Plastic Pipe, Tanks and Structures.
There are signs of shelf wear and rubbing to the dust jacket and some foxing to the edges of the pages. Otherwise the pages are clean and the binding tight.
