Course Overview

Polymeric materials are nowadays employed in many applications due to their broad spectrum of chemical, physical and mechanical properties. For this reason, polymeric materials play an essential role in the chemical industry and, more generally, the global economy. This programme provides a bird's eye vision of the methods to produce different typologies of polymers and the processing techniques used to obtain valuable finished products. 


In this programme, you will:

  •   Understand the importance of the polymers economics
  •   Learn to infer the properties of the polymeric materials from their chemical structure
  •   Learn the methodologies used to produce polymers from raw materials
  •   Learn the techniques used to produce reinforced resins
  •   Listen about the applications of the most common polymeric materials
  •   Learn the techniques used to form the finished products
  •   Apply the most important equations governing the chemical and mechanical behaviour of polymers
