How a Sentmanat Extension Rheometer can Improve your Polymer Product
This webinar has already taken place. The recording is currently being prepared for publication and will be available for online viewing soon. You can request a link to the recording from this page soon.
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
