This book covers chemistry of thermoset elastomers but only to the extent needed for understanding how to process them through a manufacturing environment and how they react in various manufacturing methods. The focus of the book is to provide in-depth coverage of tooling, processing, and secondary operations that can improve manufacturing efficiencies. Detailed and easy to understand diagrams display specific conditions and how they can be improved upon. Innovative ideas and solutions are shared and discussed. Partial Contents: Introduction to Thermoset Elastomer Chemistry. Compounding, Mixing and Equipment. Materials. Product Design. Material Testing for TSE. Polymer Flow. Molding Methods and Related Topics.
