Polymer Laboratory

This lab was established to provide facilities for processing of polymer blends and composites and studying the relationship between their microstructure and engineering properties.  The processing equipments currently available in the lab include a co-rotating twin-screw extruder and an injection molding apparatus.  There are also facilities available for mixing, degassing and casting of thermosetting resins.  In near future, a batch mixer equipped with a rheometer and a hydraulic press will be added to the lab.
Mechanical characterization techniques available in the lab include a uniaxial tensile frame, an Izod impact tester, a hardness measurement device and a scratch testing machine.  A polarizing-transmitted optical microscope will be added to the lab for evaluation of materials microstructures.
