Polymers & Functional Materials

Research Infrastructure

The Division’s instrumentation and characterization facility is the shared instrument facility and conveniently located in two rooms at the second floor of the main building of the institute. The facility maintains state-of-the-art major analytical instruments to primarily support the research programs of the division but is also available to other research groups of the institute. Recently division has created a modern process and weathering station which is centrally located in the institute campus.

The following are the instrumentation and characterization facilities available with the division:-

  • Polymers, Hybrids & Materials Characterization Facilities: Gel Permeation Chromatography (GPC) couple with HPLC, Rheometer, Dynamic Mechanical Thermal Analysis (DMA), Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC), Thermo gravimetric Analysis (TGA), Particle Size Analyzer (nano range), Video controlled Contact Angle Analyzer & Gonimeter, Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy(EIS), Electrochemical Work Station, Four probe Source Meter, Cyclic Voltammeter, Universal Testing Machine (UTM), Karl Fischer Tritimetric Analysis, UV visible Spectroscopy, Infrared Spectroscopy (IR) and Thermal Conductivity Measurement Unit.
  • Coating, Materials and Polymers Processing Facilities: Sintering & Drying Oven, High Pressure Reactors, High Speed Disperser, Triple and rubber roll mill, Attritor mill, Red Devil Shaker, Spin Coating Unit, Spray Drier, Hot Press, Dyno mill, Automated Film Applicator, Free Film Casting Facilities, Spray Booth, UV Curing Counter, Low Temperature Drying Unit.
  • Coating and Allied Materials Evaluation Facilities: Adhesion testing Units, Scratch resistance testing Unit, Impact Tester, Cylindrical Mandrel, Salt Spray Testing Units, Accelerated Weather-o-meter, Different Viscometers, Humidity Cabinets, Taber Abrasion, Dry Abrasion and Wash ability Tester, Color spectrophotometer and all other small equipments for coating testing etc.
  • Centralized Materials & Spectroscopic Characterization Facilities: The division research programs also frequently uses the centralized instrumentation, characterization and analytical facilities such as X-ray Diffractometer (XRD), MALDI-TOF, Mass spectrometers, Gas Chromatograph (GC), Liquid and solid state NMR, AFM, TEM, FE-SEM, Raman Spectrometer, and ESCA etc.
