The 120-page Elastomer and Thermoplastics Engineering Design Guide is available from Minnesota Rubber/QMR Plastics. Reference sections include topics such as guidelines for designing better rubber components; recommended tolerances and surface finishes; rubber material characteristics and correct application; rubber to plastic bonding; and plastics and thermoplastic elastomers and their characteristics. The guide highlights solutions for fluid leakage, fluid resistance, temperature resistance, shrinkage, abrasion resistance, elongation, modulus, and cost-containment techniques. The reference book has an alphabetically indexed glossary and is also available in a CD version for computer downloads of drawings, tables, and sections of special interest.
