Derived from the fourth edition of the well-known Plastics Technology Handbook, Plastics Fabrication and Recycling presents the molding and fabrication processes of plastics as well as several important features of plastics recycling. The book begins with a discussion of different types of molds and dies, including compression molding, injection molding, blow molding, thermoforming, reaction injection molding, extrusion, and pultrusion. It then covers spinning, casting, reinforcing, foaming, compounding, and coating processes as well as powder molding, adhesive bonding, and plastics welding techniques. The authors also explore the decoration of plastics, including painting operations, printing processes, hot stamping, in-mold decorating, embossing, electroplating, and vacuum metallizing. They conclude with an overview on key aspects of plastics recycling, developments in the field, and waste recycling problems.An alternative approach to the recovery of automotive plastics is therefore to use them as large, easily removable components ... in automotive scrapyard economics may be best achieved by the prior removal from vehicles of such large polymeric ... This allows an easy and direct recycling of the scraps and the recovery of the whole system. ... This concept has been applied to car dashboards and interior vehicle components like floor covering, trim, and door panels, as well as bumpers.
