CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Includes examples of cutting-edge design from across disciplines
From plastics with the strength and durability of metal, to mass-produced
skins, sensuous plastics, and rental DVDs that expire 48 hours after you've
opened the packaging, The Plastics Handbook offers a fascinating insight into
the most innovative and unusual plastics for designers and manufacturers
throughout the world.
This book gets under the skin of products and materials to reveal the hidden
qualities of plastics, exploring the materials that surround us today, and
those that will surround us tomorrow, together with their practical
applications. The Plastics Handbook is your essential guide to who is making
what, from contemporary designer materials to the products of the future,
featuring facts and applications for hundreds of new plastic products and
materials. The book also has an extensive resources section, including a
glossary, a guide to different types of plastics, diagrams of standard
manufacturing processes, plus useful website addresses.
