This introductory book covers the entire spectrum of plastics technology/engineering, from raw materials to finished plastic products. It is not just for university students in plastics technology and other engineering disciplines but also for beginners to the field in general.
The interconnectivity between the different relevant knowledge areas of plastics technology, such as materials engineering, processing technology, and product development, is emphasized. A chapter "Plastics and the Environment" is also included, covering a topic often of great concern to students and newcomers to the field.
Also includes numerous videos, conveniently linked via QR codes, to better demonstrate key processes visually.
