The growing importance of polymers, ceramics, and composites in a variety of structural and other advanced applications requires the in-depth coverage provided by Engineered Materials Abstracts. Citations taken regard the research, manufacturing practices, properties and applications of these materials. Begun in 1986, Engineered Materials Abstracts is an electronic database containing Ceramics, Composites and Polymers subfiles.
Sources covered include over 3,000 periodicals, conference proceedings, technical reports, trade journal/newsletter items, patents, books, and press releases.
Major areas of coverage include:
Approximately 1986-current. The oldest record in the database has a publication date of 1953; about 50% of its records have publication dates of 1993 or later.
