Polymer Engineering Laboratory


Polymer Engineering Laboratory has been established in PSG Institute of Technology and Applied Research to initiate multidisciplinary research and development activities in science and engineering. The research laboratory is actively engaged in the development of polymeric materials for high performance engineering applications. The research and development activities mainly focus on:

  • Development of thermoset matrices such as epoxy, polybenzoxazines, cyanate ester, polyimides, etc.

  • Synthesis of non-toxic monomeric precursor to replace toxic bisphenol.

  • Utilization of bio-mass based phenolic precursor to replace fossil fuel feedstock.

  • Development of low temperature cure benzoxazines.

  • Development of hybrid composites.

  • Fabrication of low dielectric polymeric and composite materials.

  • Coating of superhydrophobic materials for corrosion resistant, oil-water separation and anti-icing.

  • Development of environmental friendly, bio-mass composites for acoustic absorption.

  • Hybrid electrode materials for energy storage applications.
