The course describes chemical and physicochemical reactions taking place at plasticization and modification of polymers, gelatinization of polymer compounds and vulcanization of rubber compounds, blowing and fibre forming. Mechanisms of action of plasticizers, antidegradants, crosslinking agents, activators, and accelerators of crosslinking. Degradation, corrosion, ageing and resistance of polymeric materials. Chemical and biological aspects of polymer waste handling.
