This course provides general and advanced information on the new and rapidly advancing area of TPEs. Basic properties and processing of elastomeric materials will be discussed. Specific properties of TPEs, modification of existing TPEs and future research on TPEs are some of the advanced topics that will be covered.
- Rubber elasticity; polymer fundamentals; thermoset vs. thermoplastic elastomers; design fundamental for elastomers and testing of elastomers.
Characteristics of Thermoplastic Elastomers
- Styrenics, polyurethanes, polyesters, olefinics, polyamides, PVC's, blends, TPV's, new TPE materials; advantages and disadvantages; modification of elastomers; present-day research including nanotechnology.
