Introduction. Properties of Polymeric Melts. Fundamental Equations for Simple Flows. Computation of Velocity and Temperature Distributions in Extrusion Dies. Monoextrusion Dies for Thermoplastics. Coextrusion Dies for Thermoplastics. Extrusion Dies for Elastomers. Heating of Extrusion Dies. Mechanical Design of Extrusion Dies. Handling, Cleaning, and Maintaining Extrusion Dies. Calibration of Pipes and Profiles.
This definitive book provides a comprehensive account of the full range of dies used for extrusion of plastics and elastomers. The distinctive features of the various types of dies are described in detail. Expert advice on the configuration of dies is given, and the possibilities of computer-aided design, as well as its limitations, are demonstrated.
Fundamentals and computational procedures are clearly explained so that no special prior knowledge of the subject is required. The mechanical configuration, handling, and maintenance of extrusion dies are described. Calibration procedures for pipes and profiles are also discussed.
This book was written for plastics engineers who need daily support in their practical work in industry and science, as well as for students preparing for their professional life.
The 4th edition is brought up to date with several important additions, including coverage of multilayer (>15 layer) dies, melt encapsulation, and simulation tools (rheological/thermal CFD simulations).
