Databook of Blowing and Auxiliary Agents Book Review:

This new edition of Handbook of Foaming and Blowing Agents includes the most current information on these additives, foaming technology, and guides users on the proper selection of formulation, which is highly dependent on the mechanisms of action of blowing agents and foaming agents, as well as dispersion and solubility of foaming agents and foam stabilization requirements. The book includes properties of 23 groups of blowing agents and the typical range of technical performance for each group, including general properties, physical-chemical properties, health and safety, environmental impact, and applications in different products and polymers, information that is compiled based on data for over 300 commercial additives. Here, average values for each group are included, distinct from the companion Databook of Blowing and Auxiliary Agents, where full information for individual additives is presented. Other chapters in the book look at foaming mechanisms with the use of solid blowing agents, which are decomposed to the gaseous products by application of heat, production of gaseous products by chemical reaction, and foaming by gasses and evaporating liquids. All information is illustrated by chemical reactions and diagrams. Dispersion of solid foaming agents and solubility of liquid and gaseous products is covered, emphasizing the uniformity of foam produced and the foaming processes’ parameters, as is the influence of the amount of blowing agent, clamping pressure, delay time, desorption time, and more. Foam stabilization methods, foam efficiency measures, production of foam by different methods of plastic processing such as blown film extrusion and calendaring are also covered. The book concludes with chapters discussing selection and processing of foaming agents, the influences of additives, the effects of foaming on 24 parameters of physical-mechanical properties of foams, exclusive analytical techniques, and health and safety and environmental impacts of foaming processes.

Critical Metals Handbook Book Review:

Mankind is using a greater variety of metals in greaterquantities than ever before. As a result there is increasing globalconcern over the long-term availability of secure and adequatesupplies of the metals needed by society. Critical metals, whichare those of growing economic importance that might be susceptibleto future scarcity, are a particular worry. For many of thesewe have little information on how they are concentrated in theEarth’s crust, how to extract them from their ores, and howto use, recycle and dispose of them effectively and safely. Published with the British Geological Survey, the CriticalMetals Handbook brings together a wealth of knowledge oncritical metals and provides a foundation for improving the futuresecurity and sustainability of critical metal supplies. Written byinternational experts, it provides a unique source of authoritativeinformation on diverse aspects of the critical metals, includinggeology, deposits, processing, applications, recycling,environmental issues and markets. It is aimed at a broadnon-specialist audience, including professionals and academicsworking in the exploration and mining sectors, in mining financeand investment, and in mineral processing and manufacturing. Itwill also be a valuable reference for policy makers concerned withresource management, land-use planning, eco-efficiency, recyclingand related fields.
