One Line Description
The book will aid plastics manufacturers to improve the quality of their end products by showing how to analyze and test organic and inorganic additives.

The book is aimed at people in industry and manufacturing such as operators, processors, engineers, chemists where polymers and composites are used. The book is ideal for technical seminars in industry or courses in engineering and technology schools that teach polymers or plastics technology both at the graduate and post-graduate levels.

Polymer Blends and Composites: Chemistry and Technology is an important contribution to the commercial polymer industry as it deals with blends and composites exclusively through chemistry; the technology examines how to use it to tackle the various challenges and attain successful results. The book is a comprehensive treatise on properties as well as giving detailed guidelines for selecting and using blends and composites for applications such as corrosion control. It is therefore an essentially practical guide on the industrial applications of blends and composites and has chapters devoted to the following subjects: Polymer types; polymer properties; additives; polymer blends and composites; processing technology; thermodynamics of polymer blends; biocomposites; blends, composites and the environment.
