El envejecimiento y la resistencia química son probablemente los parámetros más subestimados que influencian el comportamiento y el tiempo de vida de componentes plásticos. Esta poderosa herramienta proporciona una revisión de los diferentes mecanismos de envejecimiento que interactúan y su influencia en partes plásticas y sus propiedades. La tabla de resistencia química presenta la información de como los principales materiales plásticos soportan a las influencias químicas: desde el ácido acético hasta el zinc.¡De bolsillo y compacto - pero claro y complete!¡El Manual de Bolsillo en la palma de su mano!

Aging and chemical resistance are probably the most underestimated parameters influencing the performance and lifetime of plastic parts. This powerful tool provides you with an overview of the different interacting aging mechanisms and their influence on plastic parts and their properties. The unique table of chemical resistance delivers information on how the major plastic materials hold up to chemical influences: from acetic acid to zinc chlorides. Pocket-sized and condensed, yet clear and comprehensive! Plastics Power in the Palm of your Hand!

Osswald, T.

Tim Osswald is a Professor of Mechanical Engineering and Co-Director of the Polymer Engineering Center at the University of Wisconsin—Madison. Originally from Cúcuta, Colombia, he received his B.S. and M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology and his Ph.D. in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in the field of Polymer Processing. He spent two and a half years at the Institute for Plastics Processing (IKV) in Aachen, Germany, as an Alexander von Humboldt Fellow. He received the National Science Foundation's Presidential Young Investigator Award, as well as the 2001 VDI-K Dr--Richard-Escales-Preis. In 2006 he was named an Honorary Professor at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg in Germany. Professor Osswald teaches polymer processing and designing with polymers and researches in the same areas. Professor Osswald has published over 100 papers and many books for Hanser, including Materials Science of Polymers for Engineers 3E (©2012), Injection Molding Handbook 2E (©2007) Compression Molding (©2003), Polymer Processing: Modeling and Simulation (©2006), Plastics Testing and Characterization (©2008), International Plastics Handbook (©2006), and Understanding Polymer Processing (©2010). Professor Osswald has also been consulted by several industries, is one of the co-founders of The Madison Group, and is the Director of the Technical Advisory Board of SIMTEC Silicone Parts.

Bonten, C.

University Professor Dr.-Ing. Christian Bonten heads the Institute for Plastics Technology (Institut für Kunststofftechnik; IKT) in Stuttgart, one of the leading German research institutes in the field of plastics technology. After studying mechanical engineering in Duisburg/Germany and plastics processing at the University in Aachen/Germany, Prof. Bonten received his doctorate in the field of welding plastics under supervision of Prof. Ernst Schmachtenberg. After several years of technical responsibility and later business responsibility at the chemical company BASF and the bioplastics manufacturer FKuR, he was appointed Director and Head of the IKT by the University of Stuttgart in 2010. The institute works in all areas of plastics technology: materials engineering, processing technology, and product engineering.
