Handbook of Polyvinyl Chloride Formulating
A ready reference describing, in detail, properties of various commercial PVC resins available in the U.S. and Canada and how these, together with additives, are used in formulating PVC. Coverage includes economics of formulating, basic statistics and design of experiments, laboratory compounding and test methods, environmental and health concerns in formulating vinyl compounds. Also contains chapters on dry blending, powder coatings, plastisol and organosol preparation and electron beam radiation curing. Table of Contents:
