Permeability Properties of plastics and elastomers is the only data Handbock on the barrier and film properties of polymeric materials in thin sections. Data on permeation of liquids, gases, moisture, aroma, and flavor - all important consideartions in a wide range of applications - is extensive.

Extensive data ranges from a general overview of the barrier properties of plastics and elastomers to detailed discussions and test results. Properties are presented relative to different test conditions, exposure environments and test specimen details such as thickness or temperature. As an added feature, permeability data has been normalized to allow for easy comparison between material and test conditions.

New to this edition is textual summary information in each of the 93 resin chapters including: category, general description, processing methods, applications, and general permeability considerations for water vapor, oxygen and other gases including aroma and flavor. The product data is presented in graphical and tabular format, with results normalized to SI units, retaining the familiar format of the first edition and allowing easy comparison between materials and test conditions.

An all new introductory chapter provides comprehensive primers on nine core topics: The Nature of Polymeric Materials; Comparative Properties of Plastics and Elastomers; Processing, Markets and Applications for Packaging; Automotive Fuels; Multiplayer Films; Food and Beverage Packaging; Standart Measurements and Tests, and ASTM references.
