Industry Visit to Cryovac (M) Sdn. Bhd.
7 November 2019 - All 28 first year students from Material Technology programme visited Cryovac (M) Sdn Bhd in Gebeng, Kuantan to gain an early exposure to industry. The students were guided by Cryovac's Process Improvement and Development Specialist, Mr. Rohimi bin Omar, where he introduced the students to the manufacturing process of heat shrink plastic wrap from linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE) from blending of raw materials, to extruding, crosslinking and finally packaging.
The students gained invaluable insight of how polymers are processed in a factory. Hopefully this visit will increase student's interest in the field of polymer. and material science in general.
