Polymer Interface and Adhesion provides the critical basis for further advancement in this field. Combining the principles of interfacial science, rheology, stress analysis, and fracture mechanics, the book teaches a new approach to the analysis of long standing problems such as: how is the interface formed; what are its physical and mechanical properties; and how does the interface modify the stress field and fracture strength of the material. The book offers many outstanding features, including extensive listings of pertinent references, exhaustive tabulations of the interfacial properties of polymers, critical reviews of the many conflicting theories, and complete discussions of coupling agents, adhesion promotion, and surface modifications. Emphasis is placed on physical concepts and mechanisms, using clear, understandable mathematics. Polymer Interface and Adhesion promotes a more thorough understanding of the physical, mechanical, and adhesive properties of multiphase, polymer systems. Polymer scientists and engineers, surface chemists, materials scientists, rheologists, as well as chemical and mechanical engineers interested in the research, development or industrial applications of polymers, plastics, fibers, coatings, adhesives, and composites need this important new sourcebook.
