Improving Polymer Processing Techniques

Improving Polymer Processing Techniques

CRP Ltd worked with the University of Bradford’s Faculty of Engineering and Informatics on this Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP). The focus of the project was the polymer perfluoroalkoxy (PFA). PFA is a melt processable fluoropolymer, principally comprising carbon and fluorine atoms in a molecular chain. This structure gives the material its exceptional corrosion resisting properties, but also results in its challenging processing characteristics. The project aim was to gain an enhanced understanding of key process variables and to allow increasingly large and complex products to be manufactured.
