CHE 677 Polymer Product Design

Design of polymeric products; design criteria based upon product functions and geometry; material selection by property assessment; selection of molds, dies, and special manufacturing devices (e.g., mold inserts); selection of appropriate forming process (injection, rotational or blow-molding, extrusion, etc.), and determination of optimum operating conditions (such as temperature, pressure, cycle or residence time). Case histories of failure.
