Hanser Gardner Thermoplastic Foam Extrusion

Foams enjoy growing popularity because they have unique insulating properties, impact-resistant characteristics, buoyancy, and outstanding strength-to-weight ratios. This unique introduction covers both low- and high-density thermoplastic foams in an easy-to-follow style, avoiding excursions into the theoretical aspects of foam processing. The book includes information on materials and their properties and all major foam extrusion processes. A considerable part of the volume is taken up by a comprehensive troubleshooting guide, designed to help newcomers as well as seasoned practitioners navigate the pitfalls of foam production.
