The book describes an R&D approach that is common to many material
types, from polymers, biochemicals, metal alloys, and composites to
coatings, ceramics, elastomers, and processed foods. Throughout, hundreds
of examples illustrate successes and disasters in the history of materials
development. These examples clearly show how product management
and development tactics are constrained by the nature of the production
process and the strategy of the company.
The author offers practical advice on how to:
foster creativity in an industrial environment and avoid factors
that unintentionally suppress technical innovation.
develop products when the properties of the product are highly

avoid the inevitable scale-up problems that occur on

food must therefore be carefully selected with these considerations in mind.
Assessing Food Safety of Polymer Packaging is divided into 7 chapters:
Chapter 1 is devoted to a theoretical discussion of the process of diffusion
through a sheet.
Chapter 2 is concerned with the transfer of the contaminants taking place
in packages before they are in contact with food.
Chapter 3 is devoted to the problems caused by the process of co-extrusion
or co-moulding of the films or of the packages.
Chapter 4 is the chapter in which some applications of the theoretical
considerations established in Chapters 1 to 3 are developed further.
Chapter 5 considers the future, when use of active packaging will be
widespread.
Chapter 6 discusses the misconceptions arising from the processes or
misuse of equations.
Chapter 7 details the conclusions arising from the book.

The aim of this book is to familiarize the reader


with all aspects of the techniques used in the
examination of polymers, covering chemical,
physiochemical and purely physical methods of
examination. The types of techniques available to the polymer chemist and
technician are described, and their capabilities, limitations and applications
are discussed. The book is intended for all staff who are concerned with
instrumentation and methodology in the polymer laboratory, including
laboratory designers, engineers and chemists and also those concerned
with the implementation of analytical specifications and process control

This book has become an industry standard as


it provides insight to critical areas such as product
design, meeting performance requirements,
reducing cost and zero defect targets. The information presented is of value
to fabricators, designers and engineers, and it also provides a firm basis for
the beginner. The intent is to provide a complete review of the important
aspect of the blow molding process that goes from the practical to the
theoretical and from the elementary to the advanced.

Understanding Plastics
Engineering Calculations
by N. Rao and N. Schott
The #1 source
The plastics engineer working on the shop
for all your
floor in a plastics manufacturing plant often
needs quick answers to questions, such as why
the extruder output is low or whether he can expect better quality
product by changing the resin or if the die pressure can be lowered.
Industry
Applying state-of-the art numerical software to address these issues is
time-consuming and costly. Publications!
Starting from practical design formulas which are easily applicable, and
yet take the resin rheology into account, this guide provides answers
to these questions quickly and effectively by guiding the user step by
step through the computational procedures on the basis of illustrative
technical examples.
Problems related to melt fracture, homogeneity of the melt, effect of
screw geometry on the quality of the melt and the effect of die pressure
on the pellet surface and their troubleshooting are only few of the topics
among many that are dealt with in detail.
All the calculations involved can be handled by pocket calculators
and hence can be performed right on the site where the machines are
running. This guide is a valuable tool not only to troubleshoot but also
to estimate the effect of design and process parameters on the product
quality in plastics processing.
