  • Work in teams
  • Advance free, creative and causative thinking
Course Content (Syllabus)
1. Polymer production processes (types of polymerization reactors, polymerization reaction techniques, step and chain polymerization processes, mass, solution, suspension, emulsion polymerization). 2. Classes of polymers (plastics, elastomers, textile and industrial fibers, coatings, adhesives). 3. Polymer additives (antistatic additives, blowing agents, reinforcing agents, flame retarders, plasticizers, fillers, hardeners, thermal and UV stabilizers, binders, impact strength improvers, dyes). 4. Forming polymers (viscoelastic behavior, extrusion, injection, blowing, thermoforming, extrusion molding and continuous drawing, rotary molding). 5. Fields of technological applications (polymer blends, applications of polymers in concrete technology, etc.)
