Addressing additives from an analytical viewpoint, this comprehensive manual helps readers analyze additives used in plastics, especially relating to their release into the environment and the regulations issued by the FDA, US EPA, EU, and other agencies. The  additive categories, including categories on dyes and colorants, processing aids, antistatic compounds, soil release products, blowing agents, and metal deactivators. Suitable for laboratory use, it also explores regulations and includes studies and real-world examples.
