The use of reactive polymers enables manufacturers to make chemical changes at a late stage in the production process - these in turn cause changes in performance and properties. In order to achive optimal performance, material selection and the control of the reaction are essential. In this handbook, Dr Fink introduces engineers and scientists to the range of reactive polymers available, explains the reactions that take place, and details applications and performance benefits. For each class of reactive resin (Thermoset) basic principles and industrial processes are described as well as additives, the curing process, and applications and uses. The initial chapters are devoted to individual resin types, e.g. epoxides, cyanacrylates etc. Then more general chapters, e.g. reactive extrusion, and special topics, e.g. dental applications, follow. Additionally, the new edition will include information on the most recent developments, applications and commercial products for each chemical class of Thermosets as well as sections on fabrication methods, reactive biopolymers, recycling of reactive polymers, and case studies. A chapter about injection molding of reactive polymers, and sections on radiation curing, Thermosetting elastomers, and reactive extrusion equipment will be included. Most comprehensive source for Reactive Polymers Covers most recent developments including reactive biopolymers, recycling of reactive polymers, Nanocomposites, and Fluorosilicones Suitable for partitioning Engineers and young academics alike
