Title: Selecting thermoplastics for engineering applications. Second edition

Abstract

The difficult problem of selecting the best thermoplastic resin is made easier by the guidelines presented in this book. Included are methods of ranking the thermoplastics by their properties, price, and processability, along with quick-reference tables of rankings. Example programs for computerized ranking are also included. The problems of matching part design and molding conditions are also addressed. Contents include: (1) the selection process; (2) physical properties; (3) rheological properties; (4) injection molding; (5) prototype parts; (6) estimating part costs; (7) ranking of resins; (8) computerized approach to selection; (9) expert system SELECTHER; (10) resin suppliers; and (11) nomenclature and glossary.
