Polymer Characterization and Processing Facility

The Polymer Characterization and Processing Facility is available to industrial and academic researchers. Over almost 3 decades of operation, we have worked with more than 100 industrial clients and more than 1000 academic researchers. Training of users, partial or full assistance and collaborations are all possible in the course of experiment design, materials testing and results interpretation. Note that IPRIME members receive a significant discount on facility use.

The Rheology Lab is a major part of the Polymer Characterization and Processing Facility. The application of rheometry provides a sensitive probe of structure in complex materials such as polymers. See our Rheology Short Course for training information.
