Thermo-Physical Lab

Lab full name
Laboratory for the thermo-physical characterization of manufactured polymers
Research Activities

The main topics of basic and applied research are related to the technological characterization of polymeric materials, numerical simulation of injection molding processes and the experimental study tensions induced crystallization. Available instruments in the laboratory are a Differential Scanning Calorimetry (Neztsch Pegasus 404 F3), Dilatometer (Netzsch DIL 402C), Rotational Rheometer (HAAKE MARS III) and two workstations for heavy duty computation.
