The Polymer Processing Society


About PPS

The Polymer Processing Society was founded in March 1985 at the University of Akron, Ohio, USA; the intent was to provide a mechanism and format for interaction and presentation of research results in the international polymer processing community; the goals are to foster scientific understanding and technical innovation in polymer processing by providing a discussion forum for the worldwide community of Engineers and Scientists in the field. The thematic range encompasses all formulation, conversion and shaping operations applied to polymeric system in the transformation from their monomeric forms to commercial products. Membership in PPS is open to all researchers in the field, and to all persons who feel the activities of the society advance their professional development.
