An overview of plastic materials, including their classification and an insight into their polymer structure , and a review of material properties and American Society for Testing and Materials standards for testing are presented. A brief discussion of environmental factors and their influence on properties is included.
This handbook provides a review of basic plastic material properties as they pertain to the design of components. The first chapter contains an introduction ; to plastic material properties and a brief review of plastic j materials, their classification, and general behavior. The second chapter contains a synopsized description of the design process for plastics. This information was I included for those engaged in plastic design to emphasize ; their relationship with plastics technologists and how ; integrated product design will lead to maximizing materials use. The remaining chapters discuss the material properties useful in design. These presentations are included to provide understanding of the numerous tests and material characteristics so widely used in the plastics industry and their significance in application development.
