PhD in Experimental Investigation of Various Polymer Films Used for Polymer Laminated or Coated Steel Packaging Products

University of Warwick

Qualification Type: PhD
Location: Coventry, Warwick
Funding for: UK Students
Funding amount: Stipend: £18,609
Hours: Full Time
Placed On: 23rd June 2022
Closes: 21st September 2022

Project Overview

Tata Steel is one of Europe’s leading steel producers, with steelmaking in the UK and the Netherlands, and manufacturing plants across Europe. The company supplies high-quality steel strip products to demanding markets such as construction, automotive, packaging and engineering. Tata steel also produces food-safe polymer coated steel for can-making. The aim is to investigate various packaging polymers. Developing an understanding of lamination process, adhesion, hardness of polymers then allows for robust products.

We are looking for a PhD student to join our team and work on an exciting research program to synthesise the next generations polymeric coatings and laminates to be used in can-making and food packaging. With these next generation of coatings, the aim is to establish the links between fundamental polymer properties and coating performance by investigating various polymer-based materials, including biopolymers and nanocomposites. The lamination process of these new polymeric materials will be studied and investigate use for future products. The characterisation techniques include electron microscopy, mechanical testing, thermal analysis and tribology.

This fully funded PhD studentship also represents an exciting opportunity to undertake research in close partnership with Tata Steel UK (https://www.tatasteeleurope.com). Their testing and research facilities are located within the University of Warwick Science Park (adjacent to campus). The successful candidate will be based within WMG but have access to the School of Chemistry during their candidature.
