The Wiley Encyclopedia of Packaging Technology is designed to provide a comprehensive reference incorporating 188 topics from "Acrylics" to "Zero-Crush Concept" for a wide audience of engineers, technologists, and scientists who seek an introduction to unfamiliar aspects of the packaging process. In addition to providing an exhaustive reference for packaging engineers, the book is also designed to serve, for example, polymer chemists developing new products. It will also meet a need in all technical libraries for an authoritative basic reference on packaging. The 188 entries have been written by 225 acknowledged experts in academia and industry, and each has been reviewed by other experts in the field for completeness and objectivity. This encyclopedia provides coverage of all stages of the packaging process from raw materials through distribution. Multiple articles are included on all major topics, such as bags, boxes, cans, cartons, coextrusion machinery, decorating, filling machinery, films, plastics, steel, and testing. A significant contribution to packaging literature, this encyclopedia brings together in a single volume expertise from many disciplines. It contains many landmark articles, such as blow molding, corrugated boxes, fabricated cans, steel cans, economics of packaging, glass container design, glass container manufacturing, indicating devices, multilayer flexible packaging, paper, specifications and quality assurance, and international standards and practices. Numerous bibliographies accompany the articles. In addition, the encyclopedia includes over 200 tables and nearly 600 figures-all prepared with the cooperation of a distinguished Advisory Board. The result is a unique, informative work that will serve the diverse interests and concerns of those in the field of packaging with authoritative, reliable, state-of-the-art information of the subject.Bakker, Marilyn is the author of 'Wiley Encyclopedia of Packaging Technology' with ISBN 9780471809401 and ISBN 0471809403.
