The Centre for Polymer Micro and Nano Technology (Polymer MNT)

Polymer MNT  is a world-class facility within the Polymer IRC laboratories at the University of Bradford.

Polymer MNT is leading research in polymer science, from polymer processing to simulation, characterisation and measurement techniques. 

Micro injection moulding (micromoulding) is one of the manufacturing techniques employed in our research. This is an optimum technique, for micro-component manufacture, that offers all the benefits of conventional injection moulding, such as high production capacity at low marginal cost, with vast applications in healthcare, energy and consumer goods.

Polymer MNT collaborative network is an interdisciplinary partnership with colleagues from academia and industry. The Centre allows access to equipment and expertise that facilitate high value manufacturing and characterisation for all sizes companies. This is a unique feature of the Centre and contributed significantly to the research success, helping to explore new research avenues.
