Polymer Foams

Since January 2017, M. Sc. Nick Weingart is employed as scientific staff at the Department of polymer engineering in the polymeric foam workgroup. Within the scope of his doctorate, he is working on high-performance material development for particle foam applications and on optimizing the prodution process.

From 2011 to 2014, Nick Weingart studied polymer and colloid chemistry at the University of Bayreuth. In the course of his Master's degree in polymer science, he specialized in polymer materials and successfully completed his studies with the master thesis "Reactive foam extrusion of polylactide with peroxides - evaluation of organic peroxides to improve the foamability of PLA in a one-step process" in December 2016.
