Polymer Processing and Rheology

Polymer processing technologies are the processes in which monomer (bio-based raw materials or low molecular weight substances) are converted into a finished product via chemical reaction, shaping, compounding, and so on. Rheology is a key characterization technique for developing materials with the desired physical properties and for controlling the manufacturing process in order to ensure product quality. Rheology is very sensitive to small changes of the material's polymer structure – thus ideal for characterization of polymers.
