Polymer Processing Lab

The Polymer Processing Lab contains equipment that introduces students to the methods of manufacturing and testing polymer-based products and materials. Students will be exposed to variety of polymer production processes including: extrusion, injection molding, vacuum thermoforming, compression molding, rotational molding, blow molding, expandable foam, and hot dip casting. In addition, the lab is equipped to show students how to test the tensile, hardness, impact, opacity, heat deflection, and melt flow rate of polymer materials.
