Processing, fabrication and characterization

Processing methods for new bio-based polymers will be studied based on the characterized properties of the materials.  New thermoplastic polymers, for example, will be subject to complete rheological testing to identify the ideal processing and fabrication methods.  Appropriate processing and fabrication methods will be used at the bench and laboratory scale to produce prototypes for performance testing.
