Reporting on the work of an international team of scientists actively involved in the study of thermoplastic elastomers (TPE) based on polyesters, polyamides, and polyurethanes, this book is the first to provide a detailed description of condensation TPE with close attention paid to polyamide-based systems. Reflecting the increasing importance of TPE as engineering plastics, the authors discuss the widened application opportunities by preparing systems with various chemical compositions and molecular structures as (semi-) interpenetrating networks. The contents also cover the chemical aspects, physical structure and properties, life cycle assessment, and recycling possibilities as well as such unique "smart" properties like the shape memory effect of the three classes of thermoplastic elastomers.

Since publication of the first edition of this Handbook, the usage of thenno plastic elastomers (TPEs) has doubled, with a compounded annual growth rate of approximately 9 percent. This second edition summarizes and documents the technological and commercial progress that has given rise to this phenomenal rate of growth. Over the past decade, numerous suppliers and users of ther moplastic elastomers have entered the field, and some have retired from it, a process that almost certainly will continue. This Handbook is intended to serve the broad spectrum of professionals ac tively engaged in the field of thennoplastic elastomers, which has seen a growth rate four to six times that of the rubber and plastics industries. As TPEs embrace both rubber and plastics technology, this book will be useful to rubber and plastics technologists with a broad variety of specific interests. This edition emphasizes commercial practice and practical application rather than research activity. Technology and innovation are stressed, with polymer science functioning as a basis for understanding and communication. We have focused on those TPEs that we consider to be of significant commercial impor tance-the ones now used in the fabrication of useful articles, or which probably will be so used in the foreseeable future.

Currently, raw material suppliers are the sole providers of polyurethane processing information. In most cases, they give instruction only on how to mix products and do not always include an explanation of the accompanying logic as to why these recommendations are being made. Castable Polyurethane Elastomers explains the production process of polyurethane components from both the theoretical and practical point of view. It describes the underlying concepts for the raw material supplier recommendations and explains how to achieve application-specific properties in polyurethane. The book explains the production of prepolymers with special focus on health and safety issues. It presents the different types of methods available on both the micro and macro levels and explains the rationale behind choosing the system needed to create a cost-effective, application-specific product. Offering an inside look at the logic behind the formation of polyurethane components, Castable Polyurethane Elastomers enables materials scientists, engineers, and chemists to understand the total production process and reproduce the procedures to achieve desired results.
