New Book: TPE PRIMER - Fundamentals • Injection Moulding
Thermoplastic elastomers as a class of materials have been growing at high rates over the period of past several years. Because of their unique property profi le they have not only replaced conventional rubber in many areas but also found a host of totally new applications.
There are several books in English on the subject of TPEs, but very few address the basics that would be useful to readers without previous study of the subject or those with limited background of polymer chemistry. Moreover, there is no known publication that would deal as thoroughly with the subject of the injection moulding of thermoplastic elastomers as the original publication TPE FIBEL, published by Dr. Gupta Verlag (www.gupta-verlag.de) in 2007. These reasons lead to the idea of publishing this work in English.
Dr. Gupta Verlag entrusted Jiri Drobny with the translation. He is an internationally well-established and noted specialist in the fi eld of TPEs.
The TPE PRIMER is an application oriented and hands-on overview on TPEs, well-suited for newcomers and beginners in the fi eld. Like the original publication the TPE PRIMER is intended to be useful to industrial practitioners and students of engineering. A glossary and other helpful pieces of information are added in the Appendix.
The TPE PRIMER imparts knowledge on the basics of thermoplastic elastomers and serves as practical guide for the part and mould design. An important part of the TPE PRIMER is dedicated to the recognition of defects, their causes and their elimination in the injection moulding process.
