From the reviews of the bestselling First Edition:
"A very useful contribution to the plastics industry. Mr. Shah has successfully filled a void between the identification of a test method, implementation of the test, and some understanding of the meaning of the results. . . . All in all, a job well done." -Polymer News
"Provides a practical source for plastics testing . . . The appendices will prove invaluable." -SAMPE Journal.
Sponsored by the Society of Plastics Engineers, the Handbook of Plastics Testing Technology, Second Edition is a valuable working resource for anyone involved with manufacturing, testing, studying, or developing plastics. Thoroughly updated and expanded with more than thirty-five percent new material, this new edition of the 1984 classic provides practical information on all aspects of contemporary plastics testing in a highly accessible, nonmathematical form.
Following a concise introduction to basic concepts, the book moves straight to practical discussions of the full gamut of testing issues, including thermal, mechanical, weathering, optical, electrical, and chemical properties; materials characterization; flammability; analytical tests; quality control; product liability testing; failure analysis; nondestructive testing; and more. Rather than simply describing test procedures, the author clearly explains the broader significance of each test and the results it yields for engineers and materials scientists working in industry today.
Professionals will also appreciate the Handbook's closing chapters and appendices, which offer a wide range of useful information on professional and testing organizations, uniform global testing standards, equipment manufacturers, trade publications, independent testing laboratories, and plastics specifications.
