Rheology

The Department of Polymer Engineering is equipped with a large number of experimental facilities for the investigation of the flow properties of po­lymer melts as a function of temperature, time and deformation rate. Our testing equipment allows one to determine the rheological properties of polymer melts for technologically relevant pro­cesses at low and large deformation rates. A variety of industrial and research grade polymeric materials (e.g., homopoly­mers, block copolymers, polymer blends and nanocomposites) are routinely investigated.
