This comprehensive course on polymer fundamentals and industrial processing is tailored for professionals in the polymer industry. The curriculum includes engaging lectures covering the chemistry of polymers, material selection criteria, and processing methods for both thermoplastics and thermosetting polymers. The introductory module delves into the fundamentals, covering polymer history, raw materials, and key concepts like monomers and macromolecules. It explores polymerization techniques, classification systems, and the significance of molecular weight. Module 2, focusing on Polymeric Materials and Additives, addresses a wide range of polymer materials and their applications. Participants learn about thermoplastics, thermosets, rubbers, and their properties. The module also covers polymeric additives, their functions, technical requirements, and a variety of additives such as nucleating agents, impact modifiers, and flame retardants. Module 3, Industrial Processing of Polymers, comprises three lectures. Lecture IV covers processing techniques for industrial thermoplastics, including injection molding, blow molding, rotational molding, calendering, and thermoforming. Lecture V explores extrusion processes, 3D printing, and a detailed analysis of associated advantages and disadvantages. Lecture VI focuses on processing industrial thermosetting polymers, including compression molding, thermoforming, injection molding, and various conventional methods. Participants gain insights into optimizing processing parameters and troubleshooting common issues. By the course's end, participants will have a solid foundation in polymer science and a comprehensive understanding of industrial processing techniques. They'll be equipped to make informed decisions in material selection, optimize processing parameters, troubleshoot issues, and contribute to the advancement of polymer technology in their fields.
