Prerequisite Polymer Materials Science and Engineering (BMEGEPTAG0P)
Conditions of accomplishement 1 mid-semester check (week 13) has to be passed with a performance of minimum 41%, and the laboratory practice test has to be completed. The final grade comes from the result of the mid-semester check (80%) and the laboratory practice test (20%). Each of the laboratory practices has to be completed.
Short desciption of the subject The aims of this subject is to familiarize the students with polymer processing technologies in detail: preliminary techniques, extrusion, blow molding, thermoforming, rotational molding, polymeric foams and elastomers technology. Content: Introduction. Classification of polymer processing technologies. Basic rheological aspects of polymers. Preliminary techniques of polymer processing (material conveying, drying, mixing, dosing etc.). Calendering. Extrusion. Extruder constructions, single and twin-screw extruders. Compounding with an extruder. Extrusion dies (film blowing, flat film-, pipe, sheet, profile extrusion; extrusion blow molding; extrusion coating). Thermoforming: vacuum and pressure forming. Rotational molding. Foams technology: thermoplastic and thermoset foams. Joining technologies: welding and adhesive bonding.
