How a Sentmanat Extension Rheometer can Improve your Polymer Product

Description:

In this webinar Dr. Martin Sentmanat, inventor of the patented Sentmanat Extensional Rheometer tool, will reveal features of this innovative system that can be used for a broad spectrum of physical material characterization. Many industrial polymer processing operations are dominated by large-scale and rapid deformations involving the elongation or stretching of polymers during processing. As a consequence, the crystallization kinetics and final morphology of a polymer product are deeply affected by molecular orientation and stretch induced during flow. Dr. Sentmanat will present data for a wide variety of materials including filled and unfilled polymers, melts, adhesives, and foods over a large temperature and deformation range and an extensive span of characterization modes. 

After this webinar you will be able to: 

  • Identify and apply experimental techniques in characterizing material deformations in uniaxial extension over a broad range of rates and temperatures 
  • Relate laboratory-measured material extensional deformation behavior to observed polymer processing behavior 
  • Apply experimental techniques for measuring adhesion over a broad range of rates and temperatures
