The Handbook of Antiblocking, Release, and Slip Additives is the first ever book written on this subject. These chemicals are of high industrial importance because of their widespread applications in industrial and consumer products. It is very important source of information for professionals in industry, research, academia, and government.

Eighteen chemical families form the core of a large number of commercial products used by industry as antiblocking, release, and slip additives. These additives are used in the 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 at least 25 industries.

A complete, up-to-date analysis of the literature and patents available on these additives 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.
