Databook of Curatives and Crosslinkers contains extensive data on the most important curatives and crosslinkers in use today. Forty groups of curatives/crosslinkers are included in the book. They include the following chemical groups of additives: acids, acrylamides, aldehydes, amides, amidoamines, amines, anhydrides, aziridines, borates, epoxy-functionalized polymers, carbamides, carbodiimides, chitosan derivatives, cyanamides, diols, glutarates, glycols, graphene oxide derivatives, hydantoin glycols, hydrazides, hydroxides, hydroxyl-containing moieties, imidazoles, isocyanates, isocyanurates, ketimines, maleimides, melamines, novolacs, peroxides, peroxyketals, phenols, polyols, salts, silanes, siloxanes, thiols, titanates, and ziconium derivatives. In total, 416 additives and included in the book.Information on each additive is divided into five sections: General Information, covering name, CAS #, active matter, amine nitrogen, chemical class, cure schedule, and more, Physical Properties, covering odor, color, density, freezing point, gel time, particle size, thin film set time, and more, Health and Safety, covering autoignition temperature, dermal LD50, exposure limits, flash point, and more, Ecological Properties, covering toxicity to algae, bacteria, and fish, sewage treatment, and more, and Use and Performance, offering information on manufacturers, outstanding properties, and more.
- Provides general information, physical properties, health and safety considerations, ecological properties, and use and performance details on approximately 400 curatives and crosslinkers in use today
- Includes examples of application
- Covers active matter, amine value and equivalent, odor, color, boiling point, chronic health effects, first aid, aquatic toxicity, biodegradation probability, recommended applications, processing methods, and more
Malgorzata Hanson studied mathematics (major) and chemical (minor) at Ohio University in Athens Ohio (including B.Sc. and MSc. programs in Mathematics and Computer Science). She was a teaching associate in the Department of Mathematics in Ohio University and a research assistant in the University of Ife studying polymer additives. Malgorzata is fluent in many computer applications and programming languages, such as IBM PC, dBase III+, DB2 database, DMS database, Lotus 123, Cobol, Unisys, VSAM, CICS, OASIS, and several others. She has her own company involved in projects for many customers including ChemTec Laboratories, Bank of Montreal, Honda, Sears, John Hancock, Hudson's Bay and some others.
Anna Wypych studied chemical engineering and polymer chemistry and obtained an M.Sc in chemical engineering. Her professional expertise includes both teaching and research & development. She specializes in polymer additives for PVC and other polymers, and evaluates their effect on health and environment.
