Paste, Particle and Polymer Processing Group (P4G)

Paste, Particle and Polymer Processing Group (P4G)

P4G

The P4G was formed in January 2013 by the (friendly) merger of two of the groups in the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology with an interest in structured materials and processing: the Paste and Particle Processing group (P3G) led by Drs Ian Wilson, Sarah Rough and David Scott and the Polymer Fluids group led by Dr Bart Hallmark.

Our interests lie in developing the understanding of processing of pastes, particles and polymers, and their flow behaviour in particular. We rarely synthesize components: rather, we build from existing materials. We apply that knowledge to manufacture, at industrial scale, products with desired microstructure or function, or, equally importantly, to resolve problems encountered in processing such materials.

The group's activities range from fundamental theoretical, numerical and experimental investigations to applied and proof-of-concept studies. The research page gives a full listing of ongoing and past projects, including access to the archives of the Powder and Paste Processing Group and the Polymer Fluids Group.
