Dr Ebnesajjad demystifies fluoropolymers for a wide audience of designers, engineers and product designers - providing them with the toolkit required to unlock the potential of this important group of high performance polymers for applications across a wide range of market sectors: automotive, aerospace, medical devices, high performance apparel, oil & gas, renewable energy / solar photovoltaics, electronics / semiconductor, pharmaceuticals, chemical processing, etc. Properties and applications are illustrated by real world examples as diverse as waterproof clothing, vascular grafts and coatings for aircraft interiors. The different applications of fluoropolymers show the benefits of a group of materials that are highly water-repellant and flame-retardant, with unrivalled lubrication properties and a high level of biocompatibility. Health and safety, and environmental aspects are also covered throughout the book. Dr Sina Ebnesajjad has established himself as a leading author and consultant in the field of fluoropolymers. He is the author of the two-volume Fluoroplastics handbook, and Series Editor both of Elsevier's Fluorocarbon Series. Drawing on his 23 years' experience at DuPont Fluoroproducts, and his current consulting activities, Dr Ebnesajjad offers readers many insights into the behaviour and potential of fluoropolymers, including PTFE (Teflon®), ePTFE (GoreTex®), PVF (Polyvinyl Fluoride), Tetrafluoroethylene polymers, Vinylidene Fluoride Polymers, Fluorinated Ionomers (e.g. Tedlar®). This practical guide to fluoropolymers is ideal for both recently qualified engineers, and experienced engineers with limited experience of the polymer group. The material on the development of fluoropolymers and their applications will provide an easy entry point for technicians and technical sales, and will also be of interest to those for whom fluoropolymers are their specialism. Demystifies fluoropolymers for a broad audience of engineers in areas such as product design and manufacturing. Unlocks the potential of fluoropolymers for a wide range of applications across sectors such as aerospace, energy and medical devices. Ideal for both recently qualified engineers, and experienced engineers with limited experience of fluoropolymers. Also provides background knowledge for non-engineers requiring a grounding in fluoropolymers, e.g. techncial management, technical sales and support.
