By Philip A. Schweitzer P.E.

Corrosion of Polymers and Elastomers offers an in depth exam of the corrosive results of thermoplastic polymers, thermoset polymers, and elastomeric fabrics. The booklet is ideally suited for experts drawn to the corrosion resistance and mechanisms of those fabrics.

Following a normal creation to the composition, houses, and functions of polymers, the ebook makes a speciality of the results of chemical corrosion as a result of adjustments in temperature, moisture, and different corrodents. prepared via fabric sort, the chapters conceal every one material's skill to resist solar, climate, and ozone in addition to its chemical resistance and normal functions. The publication additionally contains compatibility tables for every of the fabrics and compares the corrosion resistance of chosen elastomers.

Epoxy–phenolic adhesives exhibit good adhesive properties at both elevated and low temperatures. Polyurethane and epoxy–nylon systems exhibit outstanding cryogenic properties. Other factors affecting the life of an adhesive bond are humidity, water immersion, and outdoor weathering. Moisture can affect adhesive strength in two ways. , lose hardness, strength, and in the worst case, turn to fluid during exposure to warm humid air. Water can also permeate the adhesive and displace the adhesive at the bond interface.

Water can also permeate the adhesive and displace the adhesive at the bond interface. Structural adhesives not susceptible to the reversion phenomenon are also likely to lose adhesive strength when exposed to moisture. Adhesives exposed outdoors are affected primarily by heat and humidity. Thermal cycling, ultraviolet radiation, and cold are relatively minor factors. Structural adhesives, when exposed to weather, rapidly lose strength during the first six months to a year. After two or three years, the rate of decline usually levels off, depending upon the climate zone, polymer, adhesive, and stress level.

Schweitzer. 2004. Corrosion Resistance Tables, Vols. , New York: Marcel Dekker. One of the applications for plastic materials is to resist atmospheric corrosion. In addition to being able to resist attack by specific corrodents in plant operations, they are also able to resist corrosive fumes that may be present in the atmosphere. 6 gives the allowable temperature range for thermoplastic polymers. 1 Joining of Thermoplastics Thermoplastic materials are joined by either solvent cementing, thermal fusion, or by means of adhesives.
