Written for those with little or no formal plastics education, this book highlights and documents the decoration and assembly processes in a clear and direct manner. Most plastic products require some form of decoration and/or assembly operations, and often the cost of the quality defects due to an inadequate secondary operation can far outweigh the cost of a quality problem on the side of the manufacturing process. Designed to accompany Plastic Part Technology and Plastics Processing Technology as the third and final book in the series. This book will prove to be significantly useful for process/project technicians and engineers, manufacturing operations personnel and supervisors, purchasing and quality assurance personnel, and design engineers. Contents: Introduction Materials and Properties Adhesives Assembly of Plastics Welding Hot Stamping Pad Printing Metallization of Plastics Painting, Coating and Printing Surface Preparation Deflashing and Cleaning of Plastic Parts.
