The book deals with almost all aspects of blends and IPNs formed by PU, including the thermal, mechanical, morphological, and viscoelastic properties of each blend. It provides an extensive coverage of the chemistry of PU, including its synthesis and properties. It also includes available characterisation techniques, and relates types of PU to their potential properties. It discusses composites, nanocomposites options, and PU recycling. It also looks at current research and identifies future research needs in the area.
