Re: [greenyes] Plastics Testing




From a friend who is a design engineer:


not sure what is meant by 'melt' in this context - if he means 'melt
flow rate' i don't think he will find an easy way to measure that in
small quantities. anyway, here is a site that may be helpful in
explaining what plastics' technical parameters are and how they are
measured [and what they are actually called]
http://www.ptli.com/
if you want to know anything about what plastics have which properties,
try this site - i has been very useful to me in my work

I'm not sure if what you want exists, but maybe this source would be a

place to start:

Hanser Gardner Publications' Plastics Bookstore
http://www.hansergardner.com

Simple Methods for Identification Of Plastics
http://www.hansergardner.com/dp/hgweb/detail.cfm?isbn=1%2D56990%2D280%2D1%20%20



Maybe we should invent something?
