With the cooperation of numerous national and international chemical companies, complete information on all applicable properties of these additives has been organized using technical data sheets and product bulletins as source material. The Encyclopedia is divided alphabetically into sections based on principal function. As many of these additive products have many uses, extensive cross-referencing is provided. Under each category the tradename products are also listed alphabetically. An index to all tradename products is provided for each volume so that any additive can be found without knowing its principal function. We believe that this Encyclopedia will prove to be an invaluable reference tool for chemists, engineers, and all those associated with the chemical manufacturing industry.
