Product Developers have found a wide array of application
for thermoplastics in the automotive interior and exterior
parts, business machines, medical, telecommunications equipment,
microwaveable packaging, appliances, and specialty uses. However,
finding a material that can meet consumer demands is no small
task. While technological information is readily available
regarding the general properties of common thermoplastic material,
there is no single authoritative source for building and evaluating
new product lines. Written by a top team of international
experts, this book will focus only on new and emerging engineering
resin property requirements, instead of properties of conventional
engineering thermoplastics which are available from polymer
producers and compounders.
