The Extrusion Coating Manual, Fifth Edition, is now available for purchase.
This is the most comprehensive, hands-on manual covering the entire extrusion coating process, materials, equipment, and products. The book provides expert knowledge for engineers, technicians, operators, and managers on all aspects of the modern extrusion coating process.  
Since the fourth edition was published almost 20 years ago, there has been dramatic modernization in extrusion and laminating technology. Advances in computer design and machining, resin technology and co-extrusion technology have all advanced to the point that extrusion coating and laminating now compete with traditional rigid materials in many packaging markets. These advances have increased productivity, reduced waste and provided more product options to the industry and ultimately the consumer. 
This book is stunning with full-color photos and illustrations. Some of the new features in the Fifth Edition of the Extrusion Coating Manual, include, but are not limited to:
  • 28 additional sections, including: Lamination Equipment, Process Variables, Structures, and Troubleshooting
  • 23 renowned, new contributors and authors
  • Highlights in technology modernization, such as increased productivity, reduced waste, and more product options. 
The manual is a product of TAPPI's Product and Marketing Team of the International Flexible Packaging and Extrusion Division.  A percentage of product sales are contributed to this division's Foundation, which supports student scholarships. Available in print, electronic format, or as a bundle.
