About Handbook of Fillers, Extenders, and Diluents, Second Edition

Use this comprehensive resource and find answers to questions like:

What fillers what fillers are safe to use in tablets and capsules for pharmaceuticals?
What fillers are available for a tire application?
What extenders are suitable for a specific paint or coating application?
What diluents will satisfy requirements for an adhesive formulation?

This is the first update of this important reference in nine years. It describes more than 3000 trade names, generic chemicals, and materials that serve the dual functions of lowering the overall cost and improving the effectiveness of the end products to which they are added.
The distinction between fillers, extenders, and diluents varies from industry to industry In the paper industry they are used to improve brightness, increase opacity, and reduce porosity. In paints, often referred to as inerts, extenders, and supplemental pigments, they are used to increase color, hiding power, weatherability and control viscosity. Fillers in plastics and polymers impart impact strength, lubricity, electrical and thermal properties. Diluents, besides supplying bulk to detergents, cosmetics, and pharmaceuticals, act to adjust dose or concentration. In general, they share essential commercial functionsó increasing the bulk weight of products, diluting expensive materials, and/or acting as delivery systems for active ingredients. This group of products, therefore, is treated in this single reference source.

Hyperlinking: Trade names to MFG-Branch and Generic chemicals section; Trade name manufacturers to Manufacturers web sites
PART II—Chemical/Material Monographs with Trade Name Cross-Reference
This section covers more than 650 chemicals/materials used as fillers, extenders, and diluents. Each entry contains information including the following: CAS (Chemical Abstract Service), EINECS/ELINCS (European Inventory of Existing Commercial Chemical Substances/European List of Notified Chemical Substances), and UN/DOT reference numbers, classification, definition, chemical synonyms, empirical and molecular formulas, properties, toxicology, precautions, storage, uses, use level, regulatory details, manufacturers and distributors. All chemical/material synonyms are cross-referenced back to the main entry. These entries are followed by a listing of the trade name products that are either equivalent to the monograph entry or contain it as one or more of its ingredients.

PART III—Functional/Application Classification Index
This section, with more than 4,100 categories, is a powerful tool for locating materials based on their function and/or industrial application area. By searching for key functional words such as filler, reinforcement, diluent, bulking agents, extender, etc., combined with a specific application area, such as polystyrene, tires, cosmetics, coatings, etc., the user is directed to the trade names and/or chemicals and materials that have that specific functional/application attribute. The generic component names are distinguished from the trade names by italic type.
