Course Objective

Plastic and plastic composite materials have been widely used in industrial applications recently.  Plastic and plastic composites have ben replaced ordinary materials such as wood, aluminium, iron, ceramic materials. The aim of this course, to teach thermoplastic processing technigues, technology and its welding techniques.

Course Content

Introduction to polymer, Thermoplastics and its properties, Polymer processing techniques and its classifications, Injection molding method, Ekstrusion, Compression molding, Casting of thermoplastics, Rotational molding. Calendering, Thermoforming of thermoplastics, Foaming of thermoplastics, Production machining of thermoplastics, welding of thermoplastic materials.
