Handbook of Molded Part Shrinkage and Warpage.

By Jerry M. Fischer. Plastics Design Library/William Andrew Publishing, Norwich, NY (2003).

This reference on fundamental problems in the injection molding process explains in plain terms why moldings shrink and warp, shows how additives and reinforcements change the picture, sets out the effects of the molding process conditions and reveals why there is never a single "correct" shrinkage value. This book shows how to alleviate problems by careful design of the molded part and the mold, careful selection of materials and proper process techniques. It examines computer-aided methods of forecasting shrinkage and warpage, and provides representative data to work with.
