Author's Comments:
"I have been on this career path for almost 25 years, and have now decided - not only professionally, but also privately - to share my experiences with those who work within this industry on a day-to-day basis.

My worldwide experience in blown film extrusion has made it clear to me that today's operator is lacking vital information. The information in this book would enable him to recognize and solve problems. Practical operator training is very educational and useful; however, not all problems can be solved during the instruction period. Working with the end product - film - brings these questions to light. This reference book with its straightforward concepts should also make it easier for the beginner to get a handle on the subject."
