**** The second edition (1978) is cited in Sheehy. The present edition is revised to accommodate new terms arising from new materials and new processing techniques developed during the interim; terms related to the increased importance of toxicity, safety, flammability, and environmental concerns; and terms basic to process control, statistics, and quality management even though they are not specific to plastics. More emphasis is also given in this edition to basic polymer science. Many of the definitions are filled out considerably beyond what is characteristic of conventional dictionaries, yet generally employ simple language accessible to students and workers without deep technical education.
