How easy life would be if only moldings were the same size and shape as the mold. But they never are, as molders, toolmakers, designers and end users know only too well. Shrinkage ensures that the size is always different. Warpage often changes the shape too. The effects are worse for some plastics than others. Why is that? What can you do about it? The Mold Shrinkage and Warpage Handbook is the first and only book to deal with this fundamental problem. The handbook explains in plain terms why moldings shrink and warp, shows how additives and reinforcements change the picture, sets out the effect of molding process conditions, and tells why you never can have a single “correct”” shrinkage value. But thats not all. The handbook shows how to alleviate the problem by careful design of the molded part and the mold and by proper material selection. It also examines computer-aided methods of forecasting shrinkage and warpage. And most important of all
