For the first time: A comprehensive Overview on Resins!

Resins nowadays are still the subject of much interest, with applications in many branches of industrial production.

Increasingly stringent specific market requirements and the demand for better quality control and product consistency mean that chemists, engineers, and application technicians are not merely satisfied with the knowledge of the physical data of the basic chemical products they are using. The raw materials, their production processes and special physical and chemical characteristics relevant to their applications are increasingly of interest.

This book points out the extent to which raw materials, manufacturing processes, and chemical composition of resins influence their application and performance.
