CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics
The CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics by CRC Press is a standard work in the chemical literature and physics, which is re-issued regularly since 1913. In 2013, the 94th edition was published. It contains tables of material properties of chemical compounds as well as mathematical and physical formulas.
Although there are now several CRC Handbooks, the slang terms CRC, Rubber relate (because it was originally published by the Chemical Rubber Company) or Handbook still to this work.
