SABIC Technology & Innovation (T&I)
Within SABIC T&I Technical Centre Geleen 140-150 professionals, highly skilled and experienced, are working on business and innovation related projects supportive for short and long term benefits for the business.
The Polypropylene Base Resin group comprises a team of professionals, highly skilled and experienced, each working on several development and innovation projects for a certain part of the business (e.
g. packaging, transport, building and construction) for short and long term opportunities of the business
Job Purpose & Responsibilities
STC Geleen offers the possibility for an internship on the subject of structure-property relations of hot and cold water pressure pipes in the area of building and construction.
The main task of the project is to contribute in building up basic and fundamental knowledge on the polypropylene pipe performance, in particular the role of processing-induced morphology.
Specifically, the project aims towards an analysis of polymer pipes made of from either different polypropylene or polyethylene resins, utilizing different processing conditions.
The results of this project will contribute to a better understanding of structure-property relationship, caused by variations in chemical composition distribution of the polymer resins on one and processing conditions on the other hand.
For this purpose, crystallization, polymorphism and orientation behavior has to be investigated using analytical techniques (like f.
e. Differental Scanning Calorimetry, optical microscopy, X-Ray diffraction / scattering ). and will be ultimately related to properties of the pipes that are evaluated using mechanical analysis.
