Polymer blends offer properties not easily obtained through the use of a single polymer, including the ability to withstand high temperature conditions. High Temperature Polymer Blends outlines the characteristics, developments and use of high temperature polymer blends.
The first chapter provides an introduction to high temperature polymer blends, their general principles and thermodynamics. Further chapters go on to deal with the characterization of high temperature polymer blends for specific uses such as fuel cells and aerospace applications. Different types of high temperature polymer blends are discussed, including liquid crystal polymers, polysulfones and polybenzimidazole polymer blends and their commercial applications.
High Temperature Polymer Blends provides a key reference for material scientists, polymer scientists, chemists and plastic engineers, as well as academics in these fields.
