Expanded PTFE Applications Handbook: Technology, Manufacturing and Applications is a comprehensive guide to ePTFE, explaining manufacturing technologies, properties, and applications. Technologies that were previously shrouded in secrecy are revealed in detail, as are the origins and history of ePFTE.
The book is an essential handbook for scientists and engineers working in PTFE processing industries, and for manufacturers working with fluoropolymers. It is also of use to purchasing managers and academics.
- Presents every aspect of the manufacturing technologies and properties of ePFTE
- Provides detailed coverage of ePTFE applications in apparel, medical, and surgical devices, filtration, vents, and industrial uses
- Follows ePFTE from its original discovery to the latest developments
