Some of the Team’s Lab Equipment:
Measures shear and extensional viscosities of polymer melt, providing useful data for polymer thermal processing.
Measures melting/crystallization/glass transitions of polymers, providing useful data of polymer blend crystallinity and compatibility.
Measures onset and peak degradation temperatures of materials, providing information of polymer thermal stability.
Measures water vapor permeability of plastic films/sheets by
wet-cup and dry-cup methods.
Measures tensile strength/elongation, flexibility, creep and stress-relaxation properties of materials.
Fabricates polymer blends/composites through extrusion.
Thermoforms plastics through compression molding.
Prints thermoplastics for design and mechanical testing and modelling.
