Course Overview

This new course has been designed for individuals who work with polymers, plastics, rubbers, and composites. The course is suitable for those with or without a degree in the field (but we recommend our Basic Polymer Science Course for valuable background science).  The course will cover the following topics along with case studies associated with each of the techniques:

  • Overview of polymer processing
  • Additive Manufacturing
  • Thermoplastic processing
  • Thermoset processing
  • Composite manufacture

The course should provide you with the extra knowledge you need to better understand your processes and will introduce the basic principles of polymer processing to those who are unfamiliar with the subject or need refreshing.

The tutors will mainly discuss the applications of the various polymer processing techniques, with an emphasis on new and established technologies.
