Film Properties of Plastics and Elastomers is the only data handbook available on the engineering properties of commercial polymeric films. It details many physical, mechanical, optical, electrical, and permeation properties within the context of specific test parameters, providing a ready reference for comparing materials in the same family as well as materials in different families. Data is presented on the characteristics of major plastic and elastomer packaging materials. The resin chapters each contain textual summary information including category, general description, processing methods, applications, and other facts as appropriate, such as reliability, weatherability, and regulatory approval considerations for use in food and medical packaging. The data for this fourth edition has been updated to cover the five years since the previous edition was published, and details a wider variety of plastics to reflect those which have been recently developed. An essential reference tool: part of the daily workflow of engineers and scientists involved in the plastics industry and product design with plastics Details a broad range of film properties, to enable engineers and professionals in the packaging industry to compare and select materials Provides a "life-of-product" approach, with coverage ranging from properties and key concepts, through to production and applications
