About these proceedings


Service Life Prediction of Polymeric Materials: Global Perspectives combines content developed from topics discussed in the Fourth International Symposium on Service Life Prediction (Key Largo, Florida, December 2006). This critical examination of existing and alternative methodologies for evaluation of the service life of polymeric materials presents readers with the advances in accelerated and field exposure testing protocols. Written by established experts in the service life community, this volume introduces advanced test methods, including high throughput and combinatorial analyses, and decision support systems having a strong scientific basis.

Researchers, engineers, and coatings technologists involved with materials and polymer science will find Service Life Prediction of Polymeric Materials: Global Perspectives a useful reference.
