Innovation and Collaboration

The Akron Functional Materials Center (AFMC) is a joint initiative between the College of Polymer Science and Polymer Engineering at the University of Akron.

Located in the heart of The University of Akron campus and adjacent to the Polymer Engineering Academic Center building, the AFMC incorporates multi-laboratory facility featuring state-of-the-art research instrumentation for areas ranging from polymer coatings and films to nanocomposites to biomaterials research. The use of gradient and high-throughput research methods are developed for many areas of research.
