Announcing the new edition of Handbook of Antiblocking, Release, and Slip Additives
Antiblocking, release, and slip additives are used in small quantities but control production effect, cost of wastes, and production speed.
The Second Edition of Handbook of Antiblocking, Release, and Slip Additives (http://www.chemtec.org/proddetail.php?prod=978-1-895198-45-4) is the first ever book written on the subject of antiblocking, release, and slip additives, which are of high industrial importance. The second edition has included all new information which became available in the last six years since the publication of the first edition.
Eighteen chemical families form a core of industrial developments, which resulted in a large number of commercial products used by industry as antiblocking, release, and slip additives.
These additives are used in production of materials from 44 generic families of polymers. Polymers containing antiblocking, release, and slip additives are processed by 17 groups of processing methods. The processing methods are used by 29 industries.
Information on the use of additives in various polymers is divided into the following sections: Types and concentrations, Effect on polymer and/or other additives, and Typical formulations.
Information on the use of additives in various products is divided into the following sections: Types and concentrations, Reasons for use, Advantages and disadvantages of additive use, Effect on product properties, and Examples of formulations.
Processing methods are discussed using the following breakdown: Types and concentrations, Effect on process, Effect on product properties, Advantages and disadvantages of additive use, Examples of formulations.
A complete analysis of literature and patents available from the first use of these additives until now is included in the book. The book considers all essential aspects of chemistry, physical properties, influence on properties of final products, formulations, methods of incorporation, analysis, and effects on health and environment.
The book contains 18 chapters, each addressing specific aspects of properties and applications of antiblocking, release, and slip agents. In addition a separate publication is available (Database of Antiblocking, Release, and Slip Agents), which is a database of commercial and generic materials used as antiblocking, release, and slip additives in various (not only polymeric) materials.
The combination of the data and the comprehensive analysis of performance of these materials forms very important source of information for industry, research, academia, and legislature. These publications should be considered by any industrial, university, governmental, and public library because of widespread applications of these additives in industry and everyday life.
