A wide range of plastics, polymers and resins are now available. Many of these have appeared only in the last few years and the problems of identification and selection are often compounded by each supplier's individual tradename. Using this reference, chemists, chemical technologists, materials scientists, plus sales and managerial personnel in the plastics and textile industries should be able to overcome such difficulties with ease. Divided into three sections, this book offers an alphabetical listing of tradenames for resins and plastic compounds. Each entry includes the manufacturer's name, chemical description, function, application and physical properties. It includes a list of chemicals arranged alphabetically by systematic name and cross-referenced to the trade-names given in the first section. It also lists the addresses of international manufacturing companies, together with details of their products.
