Following the success of the first (1995) edition, this fully updated report will provide a global overview of the use of automotive plastics and composites in passenger vehicles, with an analysis of markets and trends to the year 2007. Special attention is given to vehicle weight reduction. For a PDF version of the report please call Tina Enright on +44 (0) 1865 843008 for price details.
This book presents formulations for over-the-counter (OTC) or nonprescription drugs. The OTC drug formulations in this book are organized according to their therapeutic effect. There are 19 categories of OTC drugs included. Each category is presented in a single chapter that consists of two parts; Part I presents the composition of brand name products, and Part II presents starting or prototype formulations contributed by suppliers of raw materials for OTC drugs. The brand name products are listed alphabetically in Part I of each chapter, followed by the name of the manufacturer, the type and concentration of the active ingredient(s) and the product form(s). It is also customary, but not req...
This extensively revised and updated second edition of the only data handbook available on the properties of commercial polymeric films details the permeability characteristics of over 125 major plastic and elastomer packaging materials. New to this edition are 92 resin chapters containing textual summary information including: category, general description, processing methods, applications, and general permeability considerations for water vapor, oxygen, and other gases including aroma and flavor. The product data is presented in graphical and tabular format, retaining the familiar format of the first edition and allowing easy comparison between materials and test conditions.
Chemical Resistance of Engineering Thermoplastics provides a comprehensive, cross-referenced compilation of chemical resistance data that explains the effect of thousands of reagents, the environment, and other exposure media on the properties and characteristics of engineering thermoplastics – plastics which are generally used in higher performance applications. A huge range of exposure media are included, from aircraft fuel to alcohol, corn syrup to hydrochloric acid, and salt to silver acetate. This information has been substantially updated, curated, and organized by the engineers at M-Base Engineering + Software, a leading supplier of material databases, material information systems, ...
Marketing Arguments: 1. Each volume of the series informs about the corrosion characteristics of materials, both important and frequently used. 2. Possibilities for the prevention and cure of corrosion are described. 3. The series provides extensive and up-to-date in- formation on the subject of corrosion. 4. The volumes are conceived for practical use; numerous tables and illustrations provide a lot of data, each chapter is heavily referenced. 5. Each chapter is systematically organized; hence, the reader can find the information he is looking for easily and quickly.
The Dechema Corrosion Handbook - a series of at least twelve large format volumes (21 cm x 28 cm) - describes the corrosion behavior of technically important and often applied materials, and shows possible ways to prevent and fight corrosion. The handbook is a comprehensive, reliable and up-to-date reference work not only for the construction engineer in the chemical industry but also for construction and process engineers on other branches of industry as well as for materials scientists in research and teaching. Each volume contains a cumulative inex. enabling the user to obtain quick access to the informations so far published.
This is the only data handbook on the barrier and film properties of polymeric materials in thin sections. Data on permeation of liquids, gases, moisture, aroma, and flavor - all important considerations in a wide range of applications - is extensive. Nearly 100 preprocessed resins, composites and multilayer films are covered. Thermoplastics, thermosets, thermoplastic elastomers and rubbers are included. Permeability data has been normalized to allow for easy comparison between material and test conditions.
An up-to-date survey of gasoline and diesel fuel additives, Volume 25 in the CRAC series covers the significant changes in their composition that have taken place over the past ten years. Addresses the effects of additives on the depression of the fuel oil market, the pressure on vehicle manufacturers to improve gas exhaust quality and fuel economy, and the desire for product differentiation on the part of oil companies.
