The Polymer Composite (PMC) Department aims to generate novel composite material knowledge and incubate the composite technology. The research in PMC Department centers on the design and engineering of high performance, multifunctional fillers and polymer composites. Our key capabilities span from composite design, synthesis, modification, testing and characterisation to composite waste management and upcycling. We offer solutions to various sectors of industries such as chemical, aerospace, automotive, medical, green and urban development. For example, in the wake of COVID-19, we have participated in the testing of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) using a range of facilities and expertise available in the PMC Department.
