Polymer Characterization Laboratory

The Polymer Characterization Laboratory includes facilities for advanced characterization of polymers, including thermal analysis, microstructural characterization, mechanical properties and interfacial fracture mechanics, and synthesis of polymers and sample preparation. Equipment includes gel permeation chromatography, mechanical testing, microscope hot stage, full sample preparation laboratory, differential scanning calorimeter and thermogravimetric analysis, low shear stress rheometer and interfacial fracture strength measurement apparatus.
