Event Details

Unsaturated polyester resins are some of the most important polymeric products of our times. Manufacturing technology is constantly evolving, and its understanding is the key to high efficiency manufacturing plants, high quality intermediate and end products as well as a constantly increasing range of applications. To fully understand unsaturated polyester resin one has to comprehend polymer technology, reactor types and operation, importance of additives, correlation between additives and manufacturing methodology with end product’s properties, and catalytic chemistry. This course focuses on all these fields and explains all scientific and technological aspects involved in the process.
