Plastics are said to be the most versatile materials on earth. Almost all of the products we use in our daily lives contain plastics. This display chronicles some of the key discoveries, inventions, and people that have helped make the plastics industry what it is today.You will notice that many important developments related to plastics and rubber happened right here in Massachusetts, beginning with Charles Goodyear’s 1839 discovery of the vulcanization process for natural rubber in nearby Woburn. Also note that UMass Lowell (formerly Lowell Technological Institute) was the very first university in the nation to offer a degree in Plastics Engineering. Take a few minutes and learn “History of Plastics”.


Polymer Data Handbook 
Includes key data on over two hundred polymers. Each entry opens with a citation of the contributor's name and notations of acronyms and trade names, class of polymer, structure, and major applications.These are followed by tabular displays showing the properties of each polymer. The maximumconsistency possible has been established for properties presented with regard to format, terminology, notations, and units. However, not all properties are applicable to all polymers contained in the handbook; some properties may not even be relevant for certain polymer classes. EDITED BY JAMES E. MARK, UNIVERSITY OF CINCINNATI PUBLISHED BY OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS


Plastics Engineered Product Design By D.V. Rosato
A comprehensive book which collates the experience of two well-known US plastic engineers. Enables engineers to make informed decisions. Includes a unique chronology of the world of plastics.The use of plastics is increasing year on year, and new uses are being found for plastics in many industries. Designers using plastics need to understand the nature and properties of the materials which they are using so that the products perform to set standards.

Each chapter is an authoritative source of practical advice for engineers, providing authoritative guidance from experts that will lead to cost savings and process improvements. Throughout the book, the focus is on the engineering aspects of producing and using plastics.

PDL HANDBOOK SERIES : Handbook of Plastics Joining 
A hands-on guide to choosing and using old and new technologies for joining plastics and elastomers. Includes detailed discussions of over 25 techniques used to join plastics to themselves and to other materials. Advantages and disadvantages of each technique along with detailed discussions of applications are presented. A second section is organized by material and provides details of using different processes with over 50 generic families of plastics and how different techniques and operating parameters affect weld strength and other criteria. This book is an excellent reference in determining the best joining technique for their application and providing guidance in how to design and prepare for production.

PDL HANDBOOK Chemical Resistance of Thermoplastics William Woishnis, Sina Ebnesajja.  Chemical Resistance of Thermoplastics is a unique reference work, providing a comprehensive cross-referenced compilation of chemical resistance data that explains the effect of thousands of exposure media on the properties and characteristics of commodity the thermoplastics. The single most comprehensive data source covering the chemical resistance properties of high consumption volume commercial thermoplastics. A rating number is provided for each test, summarizing the effect of the exposure medium on the given thermoplastic.

Thermoplastics and Thermoplastics Composites
Thermoplastics represent appx 90% by weight of all plastics consumed world-wide. We know them mainly in the form of polythenes, polyolefins, polystyrenes, nylons and acrylics. Under different heating conditions and by varying the composition of the plastic it is possible to make many different products with differing properties. This is a decision-making tool and source-book of information for plastics users, providing detailed accounts of the materials used, their economics,the selection of appropriate materials, and the use of thermoplastic resins and their composites. By having this book to hand, you will use the right material in the right way to produce the right product.

Plastics Technology Handbook 
Edited by Donald V. Rosato PhD, MBA, MS, BS, PE Marlene G. Rosato BASc (ChE), P Eng Nick R. Schott PhD, MS, BS (ChE), PE UMASS Lowell Professor of Plastics Engineering Emeritus & Plastics Department Head Retired VOLUME 2 Manufacturing • Composites • Tooling • Auxiliary
This comprehensive two-volume handbook provides a simplified, practical, and innovative approach to understanding the design and manufacture of plastic products. It will expand the reader’s understanding of plastics technology by defining and focusing on past, current, and future technical trends. In this second volume, all major plastics compounding and forming technologies are presented from mass production extrusion and injection processes to specialty techniques.

Chemical Resistance Guide Thermoplastics and Elastomers
Thermoplastics and elastomers have outstanding resistance to a wide range of chemical reagents. The chemical resistance of plastic piping is basically a function of the thermoplastic material and the compounding components. Thermoplastic pipes with significant filler percentages may be susceptible to chemical attack where an unfilled material may be affected to a lesser degree or not at all.The data in the following tables were obtained from numerous sources in the industry. The information is based on immersion tests on unstressed coupons, experiments and, when available, actual process experience as well as data from tests inclusive of stress from temperature and pressure.

The Practical Guide to Polyethylene  
Begins with general background to the polyethylene family, with price, production and market share information. It describes the basic types of polyethylene including virgin and filled polyethylene, copolymers, block and graft polymers and composites, and reviews the types of additives used in polyethylene.Polyethylenes offer a wide range of properties due to differences in structure and molecular weight, and the Practical Guide gives the low down on the properties, including, amongst others, rheological, mechanical, chemical, thermal, and electrical properties. Design of a polymeric product for a certain application is a complex task, and this is particularly true for polyethylene with its variety of forms and available processing methods. This Practical Guide describes the processing issues and conditions for the wide range of techniques used for polyethylene, and also considers post-processing and assembly issues. It offers guidance on product design and development issues, including materials selection. The Practical Guide to Polyethylene is an indispensable resource for everyone working with this material.


Plastics Engineering Third Ed. R.J. Crawford
This book presents in a single volume the basic essentials of the properties and processing behaviour of plastics and composites. The aim is to give engineers and technologists a sound understanding of basic principles without the introduction of unduly complex levels of mathematics or chemistry and thereby set plastics in their proper context as engineering materials. This textbook pioneered the approach whereby both properties and processing of reinforced and unreinforced plastics are covered in a single volume. It assumes no prior knowledge of plastics, and emphasises the practical aspects of the subject. In this third edition over half the book has been re-written and the remainder has been updated and re-organised. Early chapters give an introduction to the types of plastics which are currently available and describe how a designer goes about the selection of a plastic for a particular application. Later chapters lead the reader into more advanced aspects of mechanical design and analysis of polymer melt flow. All techniques developed are illustrated by numerous worked examples, and problems are given at the end of each chapter - the solutions to which form one of the appendices.

  1. Plastics engineering are a field that involves the design and the production of objects made from plastic. An engineer can work with this material to come up with a design according to the specifications of his client. He can produce different types of items such as consumer products, medical items, and so on. But this blog is full of informative reading book just like E-book. This is very nice blog.

  2. Thanks a lot. Lots of Valuable information.
