This completely revised and updated fifth edition manual is the culmination of years of work by more than 50 well known industry experts from around the world and contains 56 sections within seven chapters. This NEW, fifth edition represents a dramatic modernization in technology over the previous fourth edition, published in 1998, with an additional 17 contributors and 20 more sections. 

Since the fourth edition, advances in computer design and machining, resin technology, and coextrusion technology have all advanced to the point that extrusion coating and laminating now compete with traditional rigid materials in many packaging markets. 

These advances have resulted in:

  • Increased productivity
  • Reduced waste
  • More product options available to the industry and the consumer

The fifth edition reviews as many practical aspects of the process, materials, equipment, and products as possible in one concise manual. The goal of this hands-on, training manual is to convey sufficient knowledge to the engineer, technician, operator or manager to understand the aspects of the extrusion coating process.
