Crystallization kinetics of polymer materials

The properties of polymer products are defined also by the properties of feedstock materials. Moreover, the properties of polymeric materials (especially partially crystalline thermoplastics) can be changed by changing the manufacturing parameters. One of the important parameters is the rate of cooling of the material in the mold, which affects the degree of crystallinity of the polymer.

The aim of the study is to determine the influence of cooling rate on the formation of crystalline structure of polymeric materials. The task involves using the DSC method to determine the degree of crystallization and the optical microscope for observing the crystallization process.
