Plastics without additives are not viable. Additives are essential to make plastics
processable and to assure their end-use properties.
Over the last decade the demands on additives have continued to evolve, not only
because of changes in processing conditions and production techniques but also because
plastics are being used in more demanding applications.
This revised edition, described earlier by one reviewer as the "bible" for anyone
involved in the chemistry and technology of plastics additives, provides an excellent
overview of the complex science and technology of plastics additives and their industry.
It offers guidance for all professionals involved in the development of new thermoplastic
resin grades and novel end-use applications.
