Handbook of Filled Polytetrafluoroethylene Compounds: Technology, Manufacture, Processing, Properties and Applications offers detailed, all-encompassing coverage of filled PTFE compounds. Presented by an industry expert, the book is a unique guide to all aspects of their manufacture, processing and applications. Sections cover non-free flow, free flow and pre-sintered grades, as well as filled coagulated dispersion PTFE compounds. Property modifications, filler selection and specifications, filled grades and their uses, fabrication processes, and health and safety aspects are also presented.
This essential information will be invaluable to engineers, technicians and production supervisors, enabling them to refine processes and improve end product quality. In addition, the book will provide researchers and students with fundamental knowledge on this growing field.
