Recently, we were approached by Plastikcity about republishing our series of polymer blogs.
These articles formed the basis of our Polymer Knowledge Base when we launched our new website.
About our polymer blogs
A few years ago Hardie Polymers commissioned a series of technical articles by the late Dr Charlie Geddes.
He authored an excellent range of technical blogs for Hardies, drawing on his vast experience and expertise in the field of plastics.
Charlie was Senior Lecturer in Polymer Technology at Edinburgh Napier University for over 26 years. He was also Honorary Secretary at the Scottish Plastics and Rubber Association (SPRA) for 14 years.
Sadly, Charlie is no longer with us but his great knowledge and insight into the world of polymers lives on.
Other topics included subjects such as mould shrinkage, sink marks, material discolouration, friction and electrostatic dissipation.
As stated before, these many articles formed the basis of our Polymer Knowledge Base on our website. We hope they will help inform the next generation of material processors and engineers.
“We had so much positive feedback over recent years on Charlie’s technical blogs. They generated some terrific debates amongst industry professionals.” said Fergus Hardie, Managing Director of Hardie Polymers.
Hardie Polymers are delighted that PlastikCity is to now serialise these articles again and hope that their readership will enjoy them.
