Functional Fillers for Plastics, Second Edition by Marino Xanthos

By Marino Xanthos

A complete and up to date evaluation of the most important mineral and natural fillers for plastics, their creation, constitution and houses, in addition to their purposes by way of basic and secondary capabilities. Edited and co-authored by way of Professor Marino Xanthos with contributions by way of foreign specialists from and academia, this publication provides equipment of mixing/incorporation applied sciences, floor remedies and transformations for more suitable performance, an research of parameters affecting filler functionality and a presentation of present and rising purposes. also, the unconventional category in response to amendment of particular polymer homes instead of filler chemical composition offers a greater realizing of the relationships among processing, constitution and houses of goods containing practical fillers and the id of recent markets and applications.For engineers, scientists and technologists interested in the $64000 quarter of polymer composites.

Additives for polymer composites have been variously classified as reinforcements, fillers, or reinforcing fillers. Reinforcements, being much stiffer and stronger than the polymer, usually increase its modulus and strength.

Data (not including glass products and natural fibers but including TiO2 and organoclays) indicate the highest demand for ground calcium carbonate followed by TiO2 and aluminum trihydrate.
