Description

As the use and applications of polymers increase, so does the interactions of polymer surfaces with other materials. This updated paperback edition of this well-received, popular book presents a comprehensive approach to all aspects of polymer surfaces, from fundamental theory through applications, making it essential reading for everyone studying or working with polymers.
- From the Reviews of the Cloth Edition "...both informative and a pleasure to read....the favorable reaction derives from the volume's organization and presentation of its material to ensure maximum utility." Polymer News
- Divided into four comprehensive sections: physical principles of polymer surfaces, characterization, modifications of properties, and applications.
- Includes the most recent patent information.
