Abstract: This comprehensive handbook provides a simplified, practical, and innovative approach to understanding the design and manufacture of plastic products. It will expand the reader's understanding of plastics technology by defining and focusing on past, current, and future technical trends. Plastics behavior is presented so as to help readers fabricate products that meet performance standards, low-cost requirements, and profitability targets. Different plastic products are reviewed to gain a better understanding of how behavior affects performance and cost efficiency. Examples include toys, medical devices, cars, boats, underwater devices, containers, springs, pipes, buildings, and aircrafts. Functional behaviors are also explained in terms of thermoplastics, elastomers, reinforced plastics, and other common plastics, along with their many fabrication processes (extrusion, injection molding, blow molding, forming, foaming, reaction injection molding, and rotational molding). This material is presented so that both technical and non-technical readers can understand the interrelationships of materials to processes. The authors examine different plastic products and their related critical factors, from meeting performance requirements in different environments to reducing costs and targeting for zero defects.
