2nd edition Acknowledgments No sizable project can be completed without the contributions of many people. As hard as I have tried to acknowledge all who have helped me in the first and second editions, I may have regretfully missed some names, I am grateful to many companies and authors who have contributed data, photographs, and illustrations to this book. Authors have been cited in the references sections. The names and contact information of every one of these companies has been listed, wherever their material has been used, in recognition of their contributions to enrichment of this book. A few people have provided very important support to me whom I wish to thank: Ms Brenna M. Kirby for the help with editorial work of the manuscript, Ms. Jixin Xiang ( ) for research and organization of data for Chapter 9. I wish to thank my friends Dr Paul Resnick, Dr George Drobny and Dr Mike Haley for their helpful guidance about the manuscript. I would like to express my heart-felt appreciation to Matthew Deans the senior publisher of William

Andrew imprint for his leadership and invaluable support. David Jackson, acquisitions editor of Plastics Design Library (PDL) has supported me throughout this project and others in every possible way. He has been my energetic partner in the efforts to grow the number of titles and the breadth of subject matters of PDL. Ms Nicky Carter was the production manager of this book. Nicky’s support was vital during the typesetting and production of this book. None of the views or information presented in this book reflects the opinion of any of the companies or individuals that have contributed to the book. If there are errors, they are oversight on my part. A note indicating the specific error to the publisher, for the purpose of correction, would be much appreciated.
