Established in 1919, Rapra Technology is Europe's leading independent plastics and rubber consultancy. Rapra's technical facilities are complemented by an extensive polymer Information Centre.
The information group produce a comprehensive collection of polymer-related books, reports and journals. Encompassing science, technology, market information and general reference works, there is likely to be something of use to anyone working at any level in the plastics or rubber industries, or those industries which use these materials, as well as everyone engaged in polymer-related research.
Rapra Market Reports address polymeric materials, processing and applications. Each report provides the reader with an analysis of the industry.
