Polymer Materials We Take for Granted

Content Developed by Dr Dominik Konkolewicz and Dr Rick Page

This series of videos explores polymers and polymer materials in our everyday lives. We focus on polymers with practical, healthcare and safety related applications. The focus of these videos it to provide background knowledge and information on what are the types of polymers used from commodity and disposable yet important PPE or packaging applications through to high end performance materials or biotech enabling macromolecules. Topics are listed below:
