Laboratory Plastic Processing

Reasearch and teaching laboratory equipped for the processing of thermoplastic polymers and for polymer-based complex systems. Several extruders at different scales (from lab to semi-industrial scale) are available for the formulation of compounds and blends. Besides, different apparatuses for film blowing, cast extrusion, injection and compression molding, FFF 3D printing and thermoforming are present.
