Book Description

April 7 2014 1439898596 978-1439898598 2

Combining the science of foam with the engineering of extrusion processes, Foam Extrusion: Principles and Practice delivers a detailed discussion of the theory, design, processing, and application of degradable foam extraction. In one comprehensive volume, the editors present the collective expertise of leading academic, research, and industry specialists while laying the scientific foundation in such a manner that the microscopic transition from a nucleus to a void (nucleation) and macroscopic movement from a void to an object (formation) are plausibly addressed.

To keep pace with significant improvements in foam extrusion technology, this Second Edition:

  • Includes new chapters on the latest developments in processing/thermal management, rheology/melt strength, and biodegradable and sustainable foams
  • Features extensive updates to chapters on extrusion equipment, blowing agents, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) foam, and microcellular innovation
  • Contains new coverage of cutting-edge foaming mechanisms and technology, as well as new case studies, examples, and figures

Capturing the interesting evolution of the field, Foam Extrusion: Principles and Practice, Second Edition provides scientists, engineers, and product development professionals with a modern, holistic view of foam extrusion to enhance research and development and aid in the selection of the optimal screw, die design, and foaming system.

Product Details

Product Description


"This book is a standard work in foam extrusion for academia and industries dealing with the basics of foam formation and process setup. The contributions come from well-known experts in the field of polymer processing and material science and further give insight into the world of extruded polymer foams."
—Prof. Dr.-Ing. Volker Altstädt, Department of Polymer Engineering, University of Bayreuth, Germany

"…the authors of this book are distinguished, the content of this book is very detailed, and the practice is informative. …It is an excellent monograph about polymer extrusion foaming."
—Prof. Qi Wang, Polymer Research Institute, Sichuan University, Chengdu, China

"Reviewing the principles often leads to innovation in application. This book elaborates on the basic and important aspects of foam extrusion technology, from polymers and processes to machineries. Both industrial and academic readers should find it very useful in their projects."
—Shih-Ying Huang, Holyfoam Chemical Group, Shanghai, China
