    Abstract: Thermoforming belongs to one of the most important processes in polymer processing, especially in the packaging industry. It enables the forming of thermoplastic components into shaped parts at high temperatures. Since the thermoforming of films takes place in the rubbery state, amorphous thermoplastics are mainly processed, which have a wide rubbe... Show More

    Abstract: The use of polymers in reinforcement is a field that is gradually gaining momentum in the world of material science. The use of these polymers aids in reducing the menace of pollution attributed in the production of these materials. Till now, no work has been done on the use of polyacrylic resin in the reinforcement of material and that is what thi... Show More
