PET is a polymer which is enjoying substantial growth as a packaging material - across global markets and for diverse applications. The growth of PET into packaging, as a replacement for glass, metal and other plastics materials, has been extraordinary. No other rigid plastics packaging sector has experienced the level of growth of PET bottles over the last 20 years. PET is now a commodity polymer competing directly with polyethylene, polypropylene and styrenics in the markets for food and beverage packaging, as well as for other products. This book provides a one-stop source of reference for all aspects of this important sector of the packaging industry. To our knowledge, no similar book is presently available. Environmental and recycling considerations are addressed in a special chapter. Chapter authors have been drawn from the packaging industry or sources close to the packaging industry. The volume is directed at packaging technologists, those involved in the design and development of packaging and those responsible for specifying or purchasing packaging.

The histories of Blancpain's iconic Fifty Fathoms, the world's first modern diving watch, and diving itself have been intertwined ever since 1953. It is, thus, fitting that Blancpain has brought these two stories together in a richly illustrated collectible volume entitled Fifty Fathoms: The Dive and Watch History 1953-2013. Blancpain's editors enlisted experts from both fields to chronicle the twin evolutions and milestones of underwater time keeping and exploration. The result is a comprehensive portrait of pioneers and inventors never before assembled in a single album. The book, with its unique compilation of materials, has been conceived to become an authoritative historical resource for both divers and diving watch aficionados. This new volume for the first time comprehensively charts the milestones in the 60 year history of Blancpain's Fifty Fathoms. From its birth in 1953, the Fifty Fathoms provided a formula so well conceived that it has defined the entire genre ever since. Innovation did not stop with the first watch and Blancpain has honored and enriched the legacy with numerous inventions and improvements that have continued to secure the pre-eminent position of the Fifty Fathoms in the world of diving watches. The book's chapters recount the stories of 24 of the most important adventurers who pioneered exploration of the world's oceans such as Hans Haas, Jacques-Yves Cousteau, and Stan Waterman. This never before assembled resource of horology and diving also includes a time line charting these two histories as well as an encyclopedia of terms. Numbered and limited to 2750 copies.
The replacement of a degenerated joint such as the hip and knee is one of the most outstanding interventions that allows the medical community to restore the patient's quality of life. However, today's patient is increasingly younger and more active and this presents a challenge for the orthopaedic community as a greater demand has been created for a longer lasting artificial joint that can allow the patient to maintain their lifestyle and thus new approaches in biotribology have been focused on this area of research.This invaluable book provides a broad introduction to the boundary conditions, developments and latest research activities already available to the surgeon and offers an insight into solutions being developed for new high performance bearings in joint replacements. The contributors are leading experts in their field and this is the first complete volume to bring together such unique insights. Orthopaedic engineers, surgeons and researchers concerned with new biomaterials would find this a vital reference volume to evaluate the latest state of research in the area.
