Polymers used in electronics and electrical engineering are essential to the development of high-tech products, with applications
in space, aviation, health, automotive, communication, robotics, consumer products, and beyond. Typical features of mainstream
polymers such as mechanical performance, optical behavior, and environmental stability frequently need to be enhanced to perform
in these demanding applications, creating the need to develop special grades or use completely new chemistry for their synthesis.
Similarly, the typical set of properties included in the description of mainstream polymers are not sufficient for polymer
selection for these applications, as they require different data, data that is meticulously detailed in the Handbook of Polymers
for Electronics. The book provides readers with the most up-to-date information from the existing literature, manufacturing
data, and patent filings. Presenting data for all polymers based on a consistent pattern of arrangement, the book provides
details organized into the following sections: General; history; synthesis; structure; commercial polymers; physical properties;
electrical properties; mechanical properties; chemical resistance; flammability; weather stability; thermal stability; biodegradation;
toxicity; environmental impact; processing; blends; analysis. The contents, scope, treatment and novelty of the data makes
this book an essential resource for anyone working with polymeric materials used in modern electronic applications.
