Handbook of Vinyl Formulating

Richard F. Grossman (Editor). 2nd Edition
608 pages


Your guide to vinyl formulation-recipes and step-by-step guidance to meet your exact needs

Here is your starting point and complete guide to polyvinyl chloride (PVC) formulation. It covers the basics of vinyl formulation, starting formulations for compounds, and the latest compounding ingredients. Since publication of the acclaimed first edition, a standard reference used by vinyl technologists around the world, there have been many new developments in vinyl formulation as well as new discoveries and insights into the underlying mechanisms. It's all covered here in the second edition, in one highly readable, expertly organized volume.

Each chapter of this second edition is written by one or more leading experts in vinyl formulation. Richard Grossman, the editor, carefullyreviewed and structured the entire volume to ensure that it is not only comprehensive, but also of a consistent level of superior quality throughout. As a result, you can confidently turn to the Handbook of Vinyl Formulating whenever you need to:

  • Find a recipe for a particular application
  • Discover how to modify a recipe based on your specific needs
  • Understand why ingredients produce their particular effects
  • Get step-by-step guidelines for vinyl formulating
  • Learn about the latest compounding ingredients and their potential applications

In addition to meeting the needs of experienced vinyl technologists, this book is recommended as a basic guide to train new professionals entering the industry. From plumbing pipes to home siding to thin films and sheeting, you'll find the right vinyl formulation here along with clear, straightforward guidance.
