Thermoplastic composite materials have outstanding characteristics such as storage and shelf life, short processing cycles, recyclability and sustainability, making them increasingly valuable in various sectors especially automotive and aerospace. These composites also offer light weighting and impact resistance. Thermoplastic composites can be an alternative to thermoset composites, which are irreversible and have long and slow curing process. In addition, thermoforming is highly efficient manufacturing technique for high volume and small-scale production of polymer based products.You will benefit from Sabancı University’s industrial links and research strengths and you will have access to the labs and facilities in SU IMC.
The course consists of theoretical components as well as applications. Teaching is provided through lectures, exercise classes, and laboratory work.
