After attending the seminar the attendants will be able to:
Obtain a broad idea of plastic materials and background knowledge on their properties
Understand the structure-property relationships to improve properties of polymers
This course is designed to offer participants an introduction to the field of process-structure -property relationships in the polymer. Further more the participants will obtain an overview of polymer materials as well as the background knowledge of the polymer properties.
This course will introduce attendants to the principles of the processing and concept of the deformation behavior of plastics. The knowledge or techniques from the real world based on the practical experiences will be shared and it will also enable the participants to gain knowledge on the properties of the polymers.
Who Should Attend
The course is taught at advanced level but starts at a level that no prior knowledge of polymer is required. The material can be understood readily by science and engineering graduates and by appropriately qualified technicians. The course is also suitable for sales and managerial personnel who have a scientific background and are seeking an appreciation of the introduction on the structure and properties of polymers.
