Module 2. Properties
Understanding the short term properties of polymers (stiffness, toughness, strength, HDT) and the effects of time and temperature on performance.
Module 3. Common polymer materials
A review of the main commercial polymers, their typical applications and key properties
Module 4. Polymer Processing
