Polymers at Cryogenic Temperatures by Susheel Kalia, Shao-Yun Fu

By Susheel Kalia, Shao-Yun Fu

Kalia and Fu's novel monograph covers cryogenic therapy, houses and functions of cryo-treated polymer fabrics. Written by means of various overseas specialists, the twelve chapters during this ebook supply the reader a entire photograph of the newest findings and advancements, in addition to an outlook at the box. Cryogenic know-how has visible notable development long ago few years and particularly cryogenic homes of polymers are attracting realization via new breakthroughs in house, superconducting, magnetic and digital concepts. This booklet is a beneficial source for researchers, educators, engineers and graduate scholars within the box and at technical associations.

Since important new technologies are based on applications under extreme conditions, such as at low temperatures, new requirements on material properties, in particular regarding their operability and reliability, must be met.

However, the friction behaviour of PTFE composite against PET is characterized by a lower friction at RT, high static friction in LN2 and stick-slip at 4 K (Fig. 8b). In these experiments, the friction behaviour is similar in LN2 for the two different friction couples, but polymer chemical structure has an influence in LHe. 4 Experiments in LOX and LH2 In reactive LH2, the first major works were performed by NASA Lewis Research Center [30–32]. Wisander studied PTFE laminate against stainless steel.
