Expanded polytetrafluoroethylene was the second major invention in the field of fluoropolymers. Commonly referred to as ePTFE, these membranes have found applications in a broad range of products, such as breathable apparel, filtration, alternative energy, environmental protection devices and medical devices.
Expanded PTFE Applications Handbook is a comprehensive guide to ePTFE, explaining manufacturing technologies, properties and applications. Technologies that were previously shrouded in secrecy are revealed in detail. The origins and history of ePFTE are also discussed.
The book is an essential handbook for scientists and engineers working in PTFE processing industries and manufacturers working with fluoropolymers. It is also of use to purchasing managers and academics.
