Lab introduction
Polymer processing is defined as the “engineering activity concerned with operations carried out on polymeric materials or systems to increase their utility”. Primary, it deals with the conversion of raw polymeric materials into finished products, involving not only shaping but also compounding and chemical reactions leading to macromolecular modifications and morphology stabilization, and thus, “value-added” structures.
Research Area
1. Biodegradable Polymer
A degradable plastic in which the degradation results from the action of naturally-occurring micro-organisms such as bacteria, fungi and algae.
2. Foam
A foam is a substance that is formed by trapping pockets of gas in a liquid or solid. In most foams, the volume of gas is large, with thin films of liquid or solid separating the regions of gas.
3. Rubber
The material, that is transformed fully when it is forced, and has a tendency to be returned to a inherent form.
