Id: 004171 Credits Min: 3 Credits Max: 3


Plastics Process Engineering II introduces four of the five major plastics forming (manufacturing) processes: rotational molding, thermoforming, blow molding, and injection molding with emphasis on how polymeric materials, machine and tooling components, and process variables affect properties of the products produced with each process. The course also examines melt mixing in polymer processing, including mixing in single screw systems and mixing in co-rotating twin screw extruders.


Pre-Reqs: PLAS 2010 Polymer Materials I or PLAS 2020 Polymer Materials II.
