Polymer scientists and engineers are faced with the pressure of an ever-increasing pace of innovation to meet demands for expanded performance, new mission-specific use cases, and sustainability requirements. This free seminar will cover many of the techniques required to develop a deeper understanding of polymeric products – accelerating product development, troubleshooting problematic products, and understanding how your polymer will perform under certain conditions and why.

Join us for a free one-day seminar designed for scientists and engineers of all backgrounds and technical abilities. You will leave with a better understanding of the various techniques and capabilities that will enable you to make informed decisions about choosing the right analytical tool for acquiring the most meaningful information about your polymer product.
